Dona Nobis Pacem is a heartfelt prayer for peace.  The plaintive plea rises and blossoms from the depths until it falls once more to silence, awaiting a reply.  

In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti.
Libera nos, o lux aeterna.
Dona nobis pacem.
In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti.
Amen.

In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Deliver us, o eternal light.
Grant us peace.
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Amen.


Dona Nobis Pacem, for Children's Chorus was recorded by the Virginia Children's Chorus for their Golden Thread release (2005).
