James Macmillian: Domine non secundum peccata nostra
VOCES8 and Rachel Podger

TEXT
Domine, non secundum peccata nostra, quae fecimus nos: neque secundum iniquitates nostras retribuas nobis. Domine, ne memineris iniquitatum nostrarum antiquarum: cito anticipent nos misericordiae tuae, quia pauperes facti sumus nimis.
Adjuva nos, Deus salutaris noster: et propter gloria nominis tui, Domine, libera nos: et propitius esto peccatis nostris, propter nomen tuum.

TRANSLATION
O Lord, repay us not according to the sins we have committed, nor according to our iniquities. O Lord, remember not out former iniquities: let Thy mercies speedily prevent us, for we are become exceeding poor.
Help us, O God, our Saviour: and the glory of Thy Name,
O Lord, deliver us: and forgive our sins for Thy Name’s sake.
