Pie Jesu (Praying for victims of the Sendai Earthquake)

Merciful Jesus,
Who takes away the sins of the world,
Grant them rest.
Lamb of God,
Who takes away the sins of the world,
Grant them rest everlasting.

If there is a song which sings the voice of all humanity, it is a song like this.
In all man’s suffering and predicament,
In all man’s loss and despair,
In this sin-sick and death-driven world,
Ultimately there is only one Name we can call upon.
And call upon this Name with certainty.
For this is the Lamb of God who was slain and risen,
Risen with the promise of a future for mankind.
