Tu es Petrus

Maurice Duruflé

Tu es Petrus,
et super hanc petram aedificabo Ecclesiam meam,
et portae inferi non praevalebunt adversum eam.
Et tibi dabo claves regni coelorum.
Thou art Peter,
and upon this rock I will build my church,
and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven.

Matt. 16:18,19
