Edition prepared from the Hamond partbooks. The text includes translations of Latin models "Libera me, Domine" and "Dies illa", associated with the liturgy for the requiem. The Anglican liturgical use is unknown; these texts are not prescribed in the Books of Common Prayer, 1549 or 1559.
Lyrics: Anon

Deliver us, good Lord, from eternal death in that dreadful day when heaven and earth shall be moved: when thou shalt judge the world by fire.
This day is the day of ire and misery: that great day and very bitter.
Therefore what would I, most miserable wretch, either say or do, when I shall bring forth no good thing, before so high a judge?
O Christ, we desire thee now, have mercy, we beseech thee, which camest to redeem them that were lost.
Suffer not those that be redeemed to be lost.
