Musical settings at CPDL

There are also settings by Arnold von Bruck and Gesualdo. The Missa Da pacem attributed to Josquin uses the chant as a cantus firmus. Firminus Caron's contrafactum Da pacem Domine-Accoeuille m’a la belle uses a very loosely related text.

Other settings possibly not included in the manual list above

Text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Da pacem, Domine, in diebus nostris
Quia non est alius
Qui pugnet pro nobis
Nisi tu Deus noster.
 

German.png German translation

Gib Frieden, Herr, in unseren Tagen
Denn es ist kein anderer
Der für uns kämpfen würde
Wenn nicht du, unser Gott.

Another version

Verleih uns Frieden gnädiglich,
Herr Gott, zu unsern Zeiten.
Es ist doch ja kein andrer nicht,
der für uns könnte streiten,
denn du, unser Gott, alleine.
Translation by Martin Luther

Give peace, O Lord, in our time
Because there is no one else
Who fights for us
If not You, our God.

Donne nous la paix Seigneur en ce jour
Car il n'y a personne d'autre que Toi notre Dieu
Qui combatte pour nous
si ce n'est toi notre Dieu.
