Palestrina GPd - Loquebantur variis linguis




Loquebantur variis linquis Apostoli magnalia Dei prout Spiritus
sanctus dabat eloqui illis. Alleluja.
Repleti sunt omnes Spiritu sancto,
et coeperunt loqui prout Spiritus dabat eloqui illis. Alleluja.

Words Acts 2 v. 4


The Apostles spoke in various tongues the wonderful works of God
as the Holy Spirit gave them utterance. Alleluia.
All were filled with the Holy Spirit
and began to speak as the Holy Spirit gave them utterance. Alleluia.
