O Cruor Sanguinis

Listen to this beautiful chant by our own Br. John Mark:


O cruor sanguinis, qui in alto sonuisti,
cum omnia elementa se implicuerunt
in lamentabilem vocem cum tremor,
quia sanguis cratoris sui illa tetiget.
Unge nos de languoribus nostris.

O earth stained by his blood,
you cried out to heaven
as all your elements turned in upon themselves
and with a voice so sad and with fear shaking,
because the blood of their creator did fall
and touch them all.
O comfort us.
O comfort us in our sorrows.
St. Hildegard von Bingen
English translation by Fr. Harry Hagan, O.S.B.
