Hassler's setting of a text from the Office of the Dead.
Lyrics: Job, ch.1, v.21; ch.2, v.10

Si bona suscepimus de manu Domini, mala autem quare non sustineamus?
Dominus dedit, Dominus abstulit; sicut Domino placuit, ita factum est:
Sit nomen Domini benedictum.

Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil?
The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away; even as it hath pleased the Lord, so cometh things to pass. Blessed be the name of the Lord.
