Iam non dicam vos servos sed amicos meos,
quia omnia cognovitis quae operatus sum in medio vestri.

Variant 1
Accipite Spiritum Sanctum in vobis paraclitum, ille est quem Pater mittet vobis.

Variant 2
John 15:15b  quia servus nescit, quid faciat Dominus eius. Vos autem, dixi amicos
omnia quaecumque audivi a Patre meo nota feci vobis.

English.png English translation

I no longer call you servants but my friends,
because you know all the things I have wrought in the midst of you.

Variant 1
Receive the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send to you.

Variant 2
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.
