A watermarked pdf perusal score download of Timbre Cierpke’s choral arrangement of Ravel’s Pavane pour une infante défunte with text setting of Adoro Te Devote by Thomas Aquinas. Up to 25 prints.
Adoro Te Devote (english translation):
I devoutly adore you, o hidden God,
Truly hidden beneath these appearances.
To You my whole heart gives itself,
because, in contemplating You, everything else is found lacking.
Sight, touch, taste fail with regard to You,
but only by hearing does one believe surely;
I believe whatever God’s Son said:
nothing is truer than the word of Truth Himself!
I do not see the Holy Wounds as Thomas did,
But I confess that You are my God.
Make me believe much more in You,
Hope in you, and love You.
O memorial of our Lord’s death,
Living Bread that gives life to man,
Grant my soul to live on You,
And always to savor your sweetness.
Jesus, whom now I behold behind a veil,
I ask You to fulfill what I so desire:
That the sight of Your Face be unveiled,
that I may have the happiness of seeing Your glory. Amen.
