“To Thee our fathers cried…”

The Lenten responsory ‘Media vita’, sung by the Benedictine monks of Silverstream Priory, County Meath, Ireland:

In the midst of life we are in death; from whom shall we seek help, save Thee, O Lord? Who for our sins art justly angered. * Holy God, Holy mighty One, Moly merciful Saviour, do not hand us over to the bitterness of death.

(Verse 1): In Thee our fathers hoped; they hoped, and Thou hast liberated them. * Holy God…

(Verse 2): To Thee our fathers cried; they cried and were not confounded. * Holy God…

Gloria Patri…* Holy God…
