Another reason I should like the Eastern Churches

Turns out that possible Marfan Sergei Rachmaninov (he had arachnodactyly, hypermobility, severe nearsightedness and severe headaches) wrote a beautiful setting for (Orthodox) Vespers:

Jesus, I trust in You!

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless, and the treasury of mercy inexhaustible, look kindly upon us, and increase Your mercy in us, that, in difficult moments, we might not despair, nor become despondent, but, in difficult moments, submit ourselves to Your Holy Will, which is Love and Mercy itself. Amen.

Mercy Sunday: Psalm 130

De Profundis
English version:

Out of the depths have I cried unto Thee, O Lord: Lord hear my voice.
De profúndis clamávi ad te, Dómine: Dómine, exáudi vocem meam.
Let Thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication.
Fiant aures tuae intendéntes: in vocem deprecationes meae.
If Thou, Lord, shouldst mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?
Si iniquitátes observaveris, Dómine: Dómine, quis sustinébit.
But there is forgiveness with Thee: because of Thy law I wait for Thee, O Lord.
Quia apud te propitiátio est: et propter legem tuam sustinui te, Dómine.
My soul waiteth on His word: my soul hopeth in the Lord.
Sustinuit ánima mea in verbo ejus: sperávit ánima mea in Dómino.
From the morning watch even until night let Israel hope in the Lord:
A custodia matutina usque ad noctem: specret Israel in Dómino.
For with the Lord there is mercy, and with Him is plentiful redemption.
Quia apud Dóminum misericordia: et copiósa apud eum redémptio.
And He shall redeem Israel, from all their iniquities.
Et ipse redimet Israel, ex ómnibus iniquitátibus ejus.
