Dum complerentur dies Pentecostes,
erant omnes pariter dicentes, alleluia,
et subito factus est sonus de coelo, alleluia,
tamquam spiritus vehementis,
et replevit totam domum, alleluia.

Now when the day of Pentecost had come,
they were gathered all together, saying: alleluia.
And suddenly they heard a great sound from heaven, alleluia,
like a hurricane in its fury,
which encompassed all the dwelling, alleluia.
