Amen, amen dico vobis (John 16: 20-21) – Giaches de Wert

John 16: 20-21a [Latin] – Amen, amen, I say to you, that you shall lament and weep, but the world shall rejoice: and you shall be made sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy. A woman, when she is in labour, hath sorrow, because her hour is come; but when she hath brought forth the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy.

Amen amen dico vobis quia plorabitis et flebitis vos mundus autem gaudebit vos autem contristabimini sed tristitia vestra vertetur in gaudium mulier cum parit tristitiam habet quia venit hora eius cum autem peperit puerum iam non meminit pressurae propter gaudium.
