Audivi vocem de caelo venientem
Audivi vocem de caelo venientem:
venite omnes virgines sapientissime;
oleum recondite in vasis vestris
dum sponsus advenerit.
Media nocte clamor factus est:
ecce sponsus venit.

J'ai entendu une voix qui venait du ciel
Language: French (Français) after the Latin
J'ai entendu une voix qui venait du ciel :
Venez toutes les vierges sages ;
Remplissez d'huile vos lampes
Car l'époux arrive.
Au milieu de la nuit il y eut un cri :
Voici l'époux qui arrive.
