Music for the Funeral of Queen Mary (Henry Purcell, 1695): March, Man that is Born of a Woman, In the Midst of Life and Canzona.
Man that is born of a woman
hath but a short time to live, and is full of misery.
He cometh up, and is cut down like a flow'r.
He flee'th as it were a shadow,
and ne'er continueth in one stay.
In the midst of life we are in death:
of whom may we seek for succour,
but of thee, O Lord, who for our sins art justly displeased?
Yet, O Lord God most holy, O Lord most mighty,
O holy and most merciful Saviour,
deliver us not into the bitter pains of eternal death.
