O Vos Omnes
Tomas Luis de Victoria (1548-1611)
Tenebrae Responsories - 14 - O vos omnes
O vos omnes qui transitis per viam:
attendite et videte
si est dolor sicut dolor meus.
Attendite, universi populi, et videte dolorem meum.
Si est dolor similis sicut dolor meus.
Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by?
Behold, and see if there be any sorrow like unto my sorrow.
Behold, all ye people of this earth,
to see if there be any sorrow
like unto mine.
Based on Douay-Rheims Bible:
Lamed. O all ye that pass by the way, attend, and see if there be any sorrow like to my sorrow: for he hath made a vintage of me, as the Lord spoke in the day of his fierce anger. (Lamentations Of Jeremias 1:12)
