English translation

Ubi es, Deus meus, ubi es?
Where are you, my God, where are you?
Quo me feram! Quo te quæram!
Where will I go! Where will I search for you!
Ubi es, Deus meus, ubi es?
Oh my hope: salvation & rest.
O spes mea: salus & requies.
Where are you, my God, where are you?
Ubi es, Deus meus, ubi es?
In high places, in low ones, in bright ones, in dark ones.
In excelsis, in profundis, in lucidis, in obscuris.
 
 
Here you shine on the altar,
Ecce fulges in altari,
Here you are glad to be greeted.
Hic tu gaudes salutari.
There you are, my God, there you are.
Ibi es, Deus meus, ibi es.
Here you are seen & tasted.
Hic videris & gustaris.
My surety: salvation & rest.
Opses mea: salus & requies.
There you are, my God, there you are.
Ibi es, Deus meus, ibi es.
