Non [con]turbétur cor vestrum,
ego vado ad Patrem meam, et dum assúmptus fúero,
mittam vobis illum Spíritum veritátis. Allelúia.

Ego rogábo Patrem meum,
et álium Paráclitum dabit vobis,
ut máneat vobíscum in aetérnum. Allelúia.

Let not your heart be troubled;
I go unto my Father, and when I am taken away
I will send unto you the Spirit of truth. Alleluia.

I will pray the Father,
and he shall give you another comforter,
that he may abide with you forever. Alleluia.
