Hiroshima lacrimosa


a-no seng-kou ga
wa-su-re e yo-ka
shun-ji-ni gai-tou no san-man wa ki-e

ch-chi o kaese
ha-ha o kaese
toshi-yori o kaese
kodomo o kaese
watashi o kaese
watashi ni tsunagaru nin-gen o kaese

ningen no ningen no yo no alu kagili
kuzurenu heiwa o
heiwa o kaese

Dies Irae, dies illa
Solvet saeclum in favilla
Lacrimosa dies illa
Lacrimosa, Hiroshima


Tears for Hiroshima (Japanese and  Latin)

That flash of light!
How could I ever forget!
In a moment, thirty thousand people vanished!

Bring back the fathers
Bring back the mothers
Bring back the elderly
Bring back the children
Bring me back
Bring back the human beings I once knew

For as long as there are human beings,
a world of human beings,
bring back peace, unbroken peace.

The day of wrath
shall consume the world in ashes
That day is one of weeping
Tears for Hiroshima.

Toge Sankichi (1917-53)
