Description Libera Me is a Roman Catholic responsory that is sung in the Office of the Dead and at the absolution of the dead, a service of prayers for the dead said beside the coffin immediately after the Requiem Mass and before burial. The text of Libera Me asks God to have mercy upon the deceased person at the Last Judgment.Libera Me, Domine, de morte aeterna, in die illa tremenda. Quando coeli movendi sunt et terra. Dum veneris iudicare saeculum per ignem. Tremens facts sum ego, et timeo, dum discussio venerit, atque ventura ira. Quando coeli movendi sunt et terra. Dies illa, dies irae, calamitatis et miseriae, dies magna et amara valde. Dum veneris iudicare saeculum per ignem. Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine: et lux perpetua luceat eis. Deliver me, O Lord, from death eternal on that fearful day. When the heavens and the earth shall be moved. When thou shalt come to judge the world by fire. I am made to tremble, and I fear, till the judgment be upon us, and the coming wrath. When the heavens and the earth shall be moved. That day, day of wrath, calamity and misery, day of great and exceeding bitterness. When thou shalt come to judge the world by fire. Rest eternal grant unto them, O Lord: and let light perpetual shine upon them.
