Orlande de Lassus: In monte Oliveti


 

In monte Oliveti ad patrem oravit:

    On the Mount of Olives he prayed to the Father: 
Pater si fieri potest transeat a me calix iste.

    Father if it is possible let this cup pass from me.
Spiritus quidem promptus est caro autem infirma.

    The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.

Fiat voluntas tua.

May your will be done.
