Text and translations
Iam non dicam vos servos sed amicos meos,
quia omnia cognovitis quae operatus sum in medio vestri.
Accipite Spiritum Sanctum in vobis paraclitum, ille est quem Pater mittet vobis.
John 15:15b quia servus nescit, quid faciat Dominus eius. Vos autem, dixi amicos
omnia quaecumque audivi a Patre meo nota feci vobis.
I no longer call you servants but my friends,
because you know all the things I have wrought in the midst of you.
Receive the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send to you.
John 15:15b for the servant knoweth not what his lord doth. But I have called you friends,
because all things, whatsoever I have heard of my Father, I have made known to you.
