Dum ergo essent in unum discipuli congregati, propter metum iudæorum,
sonus repente de coelo venit super eos,
tamquam spiritus vehementis,
et replevit totam domum, alleluia.

When therefore the disciples were gathered together in one for fear of the Jews,
a sound from heaven came upon them,
as of a rushing mighty wind,
and it filled the whole house where they were sitting, alleluia.
