Song for Athene

Alleluia.May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.

Alleluia.Remember me, O Lord, when you come into your kingdom.

Alleluia.Give rest, O Lord, to your handmaid, who has fallen asleep.

Alleluia.The Choir of Saints have found the well-spring of life and door of Paradise.

Alleluia.Life: a shadow and a dream.

Alleluia.Weeping at the grave creates the song: Alleluia. Come, enjoy rewards and crowns I have prepared for you.
