Parce Mihi Domine
Jan Garbarek Lyrics


Parce mihi Domine, nihil enim sunt dies mei.

Quid est homo, quia magnificas eum?

Aut quid apponis erga eum cor tuum? Visitas cum diluculo, et subito probas illum.

Usquequo non parcis michi, nec dimittas me, ut glutiam salivam meam? Peccavi.

Quid faciam tibi, o custos hominum? Quare posuisti me contrarium tibi, et factus sum michimet ipsi gravis?

Cur non tollis peccatum meum, et quare non aufers iniquitatem meam?

Ecce nunc in pulvere dormio; et si mane me quesieris, non subsistam.

Translation

Spare me, O Lord, for my days are nothing.

What is a man that thou shouldst magnify him?

Or why dost thou set thy heart upon him? Thou visitest him early in the morning, and thou provest him suddenly.

How long wilt thou not spare me, nor suffer me to swallow down my spittle? I have sinned.

What shall I do to thee, O keeper of men? why hast thou set me opposite to thee, and I am become burdensome to myself?

Why dost thou not remove my sin, and why dost thou not take away mine iniquity?

Behold now, I shall sleep in the dust: and if thou seek me in the morning, I shall not be.

Parce mihi Domine,
nihil enim sunt dies mei.
Quid est homo, quia magnificas eum?
Aut quid apponis erga eum cor tuum?
Visitas eum diluculo,
et subito probas illum.
Usque quo non parcis mihi,
Nec dimittis me
ut glutiam salivam meam?
Peccavi, quid faciam tibi,
o custos hominum?
Quare posuisti me contrarium tibi
et factus sum mihi me tipsi gravis?
Cur non tollis peccatum meum
et quare non aufers iniquitatem meam?
Ecce nunc in pulvere dormiam
et si mane me quaesieris non subsistam.
-----
Perdóname Señor,
pues nada son mis días.
¿Qué es el hombre, para que lo engrandezcas?
¿o para que pongas en él tu corazón?
Lo visitas de mañana
y de pronto lo pones a prueba.
¿Hasta cuándo no me perdonarás,
ni me soltarás
para que pueda tragar saliva?
Pequé, ¿cómo puedo presentarme ante ti,
guardián del hombre?
¿Por qué me has puesto contra ti
y me he convertido para mí en una carga?
¿Por qué no me quitas mi pecado
y por qué no perdonas mi iniquidad?
He aquí que ahora duermo en el polvo:
y si mañana me llamas, no subsistiré.

which part do you mean? i think that the sax soprano is at least partly improvised... sung part is from Cristobal de Morales..."Parce mihi domine", from the book of Job, ch 7...text comes from catholic liturgy, the 1st lesson of the Office for the dead (until 1970, then latin was abandoned as a liturgical language...very unfortunately)
Job 7:

Parce mihi Domine, nihil enim sunt dies mei

17quid est homo quia magnificas eum aut quia ponis erga eum cor tuum

18visitas eum diluculo et subito probas illum

19usquequo non parces mihi nec dimittis me ut gluttiam salivam meam

20peccavi quid faciam tibi o custos hominum quare posuisti me contrarium tibi et factus sum mihimet ipsi gravis

21cur non tollis peccatum meum et quare non auferes iniquitatem meam. ecce nunc in pulvere dormiam et si mane me quaesieris non subsistam

(english text: http://www.vatican.va/archive/ENG0839/__PES.HTM )

let me alone, for my days are but a breath.

17

What is man, that you make much of him, or pay him any heed?

18

You observe him with each new day and try him at every moment!

19

How long will it be before you look away from me, and let me alone long enough to swallow my spittle?

20

Though I have sinned, what can I do to you, O watcher of men?

21

Why do you not pardon my offense, or take away my guilt? For soon I shall lie down in the dust; and should you seek me I shall then be gone.

Wow. I heard this on Classic FM today and had to hunt it down. I was driving over Dartmoor, listening to this while taking in the beauty of the autumn leaves on the trees. Magnificent.
