America’s Got Talent contestant Laura Bretan brought us all to tears Tuesday night when she closed out the semifinals with an emotional rendition of the classical piece “Pie Jesu” as a loving tribute to her grandfather who passed away in January. The song was her grandfather’s favorite piece.

The beautiful lyrics translate in English as the following:

Merciful Jesus, merciful Jesus, merciful Jesus, merciful Jesus
Father, who takes away the sins of the world
Grant them rest, grant them rest
Merciful Jesus, merciful Jesus, merciful Jesus, merciful Jesus
Father, who takes away the sins of the world
Grant them rest, grant them rest
Lamb of God, Lamb of God, Lamb of God, Lamb of God
Father, who takes away the sins of the world
Grant them rest, grant them rest
everlasting
everlasting
Rest
