      O Bone Jesu (Robert Parsons 1535-1571)

      Translation of St Bernard’s Holy Verse from the Mapa Mundi Edition by Sally Dunkley, 1994 Vanderbeek and Imrie Ltd
      .

      O Good Jesus. Give light to my eyes, that I never fall asleep in death: lest the enemy say: “I have prevailed over him”
      O supreme Being (O Adonai)
      Into your hands O Lord I commend my spirit: you have redeemed me, O Lord God of Truth.

      O anointed deliverer (O Messias).
      I have said with my tongue: “let me know my end”.
      O Holy One; ( O Agios)

      and the number of my days: that I may know what is wanting in me.
      O Lord. (O Heloi)
      You Lord, have broken my chains: I will offer you a sacrifice of praise, and invoke the name of the Lord.

      O ‘God with Us” (O Emmanuel)
      I cannot flee, and nobody cares about my soul.
      O Christ (O Christe)
      I have cried to you Lord, saying: ‘You are my hope, my share in the land of the living’.

      Our King! (O Rex noster!)
      Make me a standard for good, so that those who hate me may see it and be overthrown:
       because you O Lord have helped and consoled me.
      O Teacher ( O Rabbi)
      The Light of your face has shone upon us, O Lord: You have given joy to my heart.
      Truly .(Amen)
