Description

SATB a cappella or accompanied by organ or piano

Although the text comes from the Introit for the Third Sunday of Lent this piece of sacred music for SATB choir works for many Sundays throughout the Liturgical Year. It is just as effective sung a cappella or accompanied. This composition is dedicated to my father André Vidal Pessôa.

Translation:

My eyes are forever turned towards the Lord;
for he shall release my feet from the snare;
look upon me and have mercy on me,
for I am abandoned and destitute.
Unto you, O Lord, have I lifted up my soul;
O my God, I trust in you, let me not be put to shame.

Lyrics:

Oculi mei semper ad Dominum,
quia ipse evellet de laqueo pedes meos:
respice in me, et miserere mei,
quoniam unicus et pauper sum ego.
Ad te Domine levavi animam meam:
Deus meus, in te confide, non erubescam.
