In Paradisum. "May The Angels Lead You Into Paradise".

Saint Benedict Ornate Wall Crucifix.

In paradisum deducant te angeli: in tuo adventu suscipiant te martyres, et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Ierusalem. Chorus angelorum te suscipiat, et cum Lazaro, quondam paupere, aeternam habeas requiem.

May The Angels lead you into Paradise:
May The Martyrs receive you at your coming,
And lead you into The Holy City, Jerusalem.
May The Choir of Angels receive you,
and, with Lazarus, who once was poor,
May you have Everlasting Rest.

"In Paradisum".
Gabriel Fauré.

In Paradisum (English: "Into Paradise") is an Antiphon from The Traditional Latin Liturgy of The Western Church's Requiem Mass.

It is sung by The Choir as the body is being taken out of the Church. The Text of the In Paradisum, with or without The Gregorian Melody, is sometimes included in musical settings of The Requiem Mass, such as those by Gabriel Fauré and Maurice Duruflé.
