-In Paradisum-

[Inês de Castro reaches heaven and a choir of pure angels sing:]
In paradisum deducant te Angeli: (May Angels lead you into paradise:)
in tuo adventu suscipiant te Martyres, (may the Martyrs receive you at your coming)
et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Ierusalem. (and lead you to the holy city of Jerusalem.)

In paradisum deducant te Angeli: (May Angels lead you into paradise:)
Chorus Angelorum te suscipiat, (May a choir of Angels receive you,)
et cum Lazaro quondam paupere (and with Lazarus, who once was poor,)
æternam habeas (may you have eternal)
requiem, æternam. (rest, forever.)
