Venite ad me omnes qui laboratis
omnes qui onerati estis.
Venite ad me, et ego reficiam vos.
Tollite jugum meum super vos,
et discite a me, quia mitis sum et humilis corde,
et invenietis requiem animabus vestris,
jugum enim meum suave est,
et onus meum leve.

Matthew 11:28–30

Venez à moi, vous tous qui travaillez
Language: French (Français)  after the Latin 
Venez à moi, vous tous qui travaillez,
vous tous qui êtes accablés.
Venez à moi et je vous redonnerai des forces.
Portez mon joug sur vous,
et apprenez de moi car je suis doux et humble de cœur,
et vous trouverez le repos pour vos âmes,
car mon joug est agréable
et ma charge est légère.
