by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Recordare Jesu pie,
quod sum causa tuae viae,
ne me perdas illa die.

Quaerens me sedisti lassus,
redemisti crucem passus;
tantus labor non sit cassus.

Juste judex ultionis,
donum fac remissionis ante diem rationis.

Ingemisco tanquam reus,
culpa rubet vultus meus;
supplicanti parce Deus.

Qui Mariam absolvisti,
et latronem exaudisti,
mihi quoque spem dedisti.

Preces meae non sum dignae,
sed tu, bonus, fac benigne,
ne perenni cremer igne.

Inter oves locum praesta,
et ab hoedis me sequestra,
statuens in parte dextra.

My favorite movement of the whole Requiem. Absolutely heavenly. <3

For me, the meaning of the lyrics make it even better. It is a magnificent poem and Mozart just added more spirituality to the meaning through his composition.

Johnny Salvesen Yeah, I'm the same opinion! Soooo emotinaly, sometimes I must cry during hearing that!

Angel Torres

I encourage you to read the translation for the sequentia while listening to the piece. Even carefully listening to the music is only half of the beauty.

Beautiful! This movement is written as a small sonata, and exemplifies Mozart's mastery of this form.

Sebastian NoSurname

this is great


Beautiful singing! Some of the best I've heard on this piece!

Recordare, Jesu pie, quod sum causa tuae viae; ne me perdes illa die.  Quaerens me, sedisti lassus, redemisti crucem passus; tantus labor non sit cassus.  Inter oves locum praesta, Et ab haedis me sequestra, Statuens in parte dextra.  -AMEN                     [-St. Luke 23:42]
