*In articulo mortis* Though like the wanderer,
*Caelitus mihi vires* The sun gone down
*Deo adjuvante non timendum* The sun gone down
*In perpetuum* Darkness be over me
*Dirige nos domine* Darkness be over me

  1. Be sure to check out these lame lads singing this same song at an elderly care center and how it deeply affects those who were caught on camera listening to this musical feast! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVl-A8CUAlI

  2. Who of us has realy still a chance to go to heaven? Former generations where cruel out o poverty. But what is our excuse or are we the real barabarians? What is the excuse of capitalism now that we have the means to help? We circle in cruise ship around the starving people – the food that could have been used to save them was fed to the swine we no eat in our expensive dresses on said cruises. I would have prefred mediveal beheading for myself as the more honest, more couragous and less painfull way to die.

  3. We have sang this beautiful song version from you many times in our Choir and every time it has a other feeling but every time you get tuched. We love the song. All the best from Graz Austria

  4. This is breathtakingly beautiful. I just cant stop hitting the replay button. Definitely one of my most favorite classic hymns from now on

  5. Not gonna lie I almost cried this is so amazing. It’s like the embodiment of purity melting in my ears.

  6. Yanni, now I am sharing with Donald Trump not the poor, I will make the rich richer the poor poorer, you want me to share, I will share, I will make sure you eat up your words !!! No more rebuild !!!

  7. So if people don't believe Jesus then why they here?

    It's good and amazing that's why

    R.I.P the King

  8. (In articulo mortis, caelitus mihi vires)

    Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!

    E'en though it be a cross that raiseth me;

    There let the way appear steps unto heav'n;

    All that Thou sendest me in mercy giv'n;

    (Excelsior x4)

    Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee,

    Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!

    Though like the wanderer, the sun gone down,

    Darkness be over me, my rest a stone;

    Angels to beckon me nearer, my God, to Thee,

    Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!

    Or if on joyful wing, cleaving the sky,

    Sun, moon, and stars forgot, upwards I fly

    Excelsior

    Been listening for years now, had to sing along.

  11. I am atheist but I actually love going to church with my friend. I like how it's a community. Anyways this music is beautiful and even though I don't believe in God I am still very interested in Christianity and other religions.

  12. I am not a "practicing" anything. But I love this choir and I love hymns. The soul wants what the soul wants. 🇺🇲💜

  13. Wann begreifen wir Christen endlich, was Gott uns durch diese Musik geschenkt hat? Nirgend auf der Welt, in keiner anderen Religion gibt es so etwas. Praise the Lord Jesus ❤️

  14. This song sets such a peace in my soul, its like an indirect prayer when I hear it and I feel that god is closer to me than before…

  15. I’m Atheist but I still think this sounds so beautiful. Lyrical content aside, I really love Christian choral music

  16. I was once living life the wrong way drenched in sin along came the missionaries changed my life now I've earned the right to say I know God and he very much knows me so thank you to all have and or are serving missions and a bigger thanks to those who take time to listen

  17. Eu já assisti esse vídeo inúmeras vezes, e sempre me arrepio. Cada nota, cada voz toca o meu coração de forma intensa! É lindo, é maravilhoso e impossível não ficar emocionada por tamanha grandeza!

  18. I come from the video edited hahaha

    It's very beautiful… But I laughed so hard in the edited video hauahaus (Helium… Hahhahsjaj)

  19. I am not a christian but still i know the whole life of Jesus. And deep in me he is always there. Oh lord please forgive me for all my sins i am tired of punishments that time has given me. Father i could not bear it anymore. I apologise to you for the wrongs i did in my past. I hope you will now forgive me and my life will take a turn towards happiness good fortune and achievement which i have been desiring for so long. Thank you
