Antonio Vivaldi, In furore iustissimae irae

In furore iustissimae irae
Tu divinitus facis potentem.
In the fury of most righteous wrath
you divinely exercise power.
Quando potes me reum punire
Ipsum crimen te gerit clementem
When you punish me, the guilty one,
the judgement itself manifests you in your mercy.
Miserationum Pater piissime,
Parce, parce mihi dolenti
Peccatori languenti,
O Jesu dulcissime.
Kindest Father of compassion,
spare me, a sorrowful,
fainting sinner,
O sweetest Jesus.
Tunc meus fletus
Evadet laetus
Dum pro te meum
Languescit cor.
Then my weeping
will result in rejoicing,
while now before you
my heart grows faint.
Fac me plorare,
Mi Jesu care,
Et fletus laetum
Fovebit cor.
Enable me to weep over [my sins],
my precious Jesus,
and indeed joyful weeping
will warm my heart.
— trans. Awet Andemicael
