Lyrics

Lux aeterna luceat eis Domine cum Sanctis tuis in aeternum quia pius es.
Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine et lux perpetua luceat eis.

Eternal light, let it shine, shine on them, O Lord, with your Holy Saints forever in your mercy.
Grant them rest forever O Lord, let your light, your everlasting light, shine upon them.
