Jesse Tree: The Sacrifice of Isaac

Titian, The Sacrifice of Isaac. 1542.

Hostias et preces tibi, Domine,
laudis offerimus.
Tu sucipe pro animabus illis,
quaram hodie memoriam facimus.
Fac eas, Domine,
de morte transire ad vitam,
Quam olim Abrahae promisisti
et semini ejus. 
Sacrifices and prayers of praise, Lord,
we offer to You.
Receive them in behalf of those souls
we commemorate today.
And let them, Lord,
pass from death to life,
which was promised to Abraham
and his descendants.
-Requiem Mass Offertory

Music: Magnificat, Cristóbal de Morales (1500-1553).
