Music For Lent, 2016 (Day 10)

The fifth and final hymn from this Rheinberger cycle.

Angelis suis Deus mandavit de te
ut custodiant te in omnibus viis tuis
in manibus portabunt te
ne umquam offendas ad lapidem pedem tuum.
He shall give His angels charge over thee
to keep thee in all thy ways
in their hands they shall bear thee
lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
