Virgin Black – Requiem Mezzo Forte Lyrics (2007)

1. Requiem, Kyrie

The hour of parting is at hand
Sorrow ever awaits on joy
And has rendered me to (pieces)
Drink me deep
O death devour
Cover me with darkness
And paint me like death
I drown in remembrance
Sorrow ever awaits on joy
And has rendered me to (pieces)
Requiem, Kyrie, requiem
I drown in remembrance
Sorrow ever awaits on joy
And has rendered me to (pieces)
Requiem, Kyrie, requiem.

2. In Death

O misery you live
I have been struck and am suffering
O misery you live
You take bread from hands
That hold so little
And show treason to a faithful heart
There is no healing balm of reason
O wretchedness, O misery
Fall upon mercy
Set thy altar here
Lifeless life cradles lifeless death
Set thy altar here
Fall upon mercy
O wretchedness, O misery
O misery you live
I have been struck and am suffering
O misery you live
O misery you live in death
Exaudi orationem (meam)
Quantus tremor est futurus
Exaudi orationem (meam)
The hour is at, parting is at hand
The hour is at hand
The hour is at, parting is at…

3. Midnight’s Hymn

To my head I raise a wreath of white flowers
and cry unhappiness
My mournful valediction
I drink deep into your soul
Thanatos Kyrie eleison
I tread alone
Bowed and stooping figure
Tears standing in my eyes
Icons waver in my vision
I grieve as the dirge is sung
To my head I raise a wreath of white flowers
And cry unhappiness
My mournful valediction
I drink deep into your soul
Thanatos, Kyrie eleison

4. …and I Am Suffering

My God be upheld in our distress
My cries fill the air, my cries fill the air
The fangs of suffering tear my bosom
And refuse to release their hold
When will my sorrow begin to pale?
When will my sorrow begin to pale?
Lux aeterna luceat eis Domine
My God be upheld in our distress
When will my sorrow begin to pale?
My cries fill the air
I have been struck and I am suffering
When will my sorrow begin to pale?

5. Domine

Dies illa, dies irae
Dies illa, dies irae
The hour is at…
Loss and grief in chorus
Chime forth their canticles
Loss and grief
Dies illa, dies irae
The hour is at hand
Sorrow ever awaits on joy, Domine
Sorrow ever awaits on joy
Judgement is at hand
All flesh is barren
All souls subject
Quantus tremor est futurus
Quantus tremor
Judgement is at hand
Requiem
Domine

6. Lacrimosa (I Am Blind with Weeping)

The hour of judgement is at hand
The hour of judgement is…
Lord be upheld in our distress
The hour of judgement is…
All fall silent, all fall
Lacrimosa, dies illa
Lacrimosa, dies illa
All fall silent, the hour is at hand
Libera eis Domine, (de poenis)
Lord be upheld in our distress
The hour of judgement is…

7. Rest Eternal

Sorrow ever awaits on joy
And has rendered me to (pieces)
Sorrow ever awaits on joy
And has rendered me to (pieces)
Requiem, Kyrie, requiem.
