Vigilate

William Byrd

Vigilate, nescitis enim quando Dominus domus veniat,
sero, an media nocte, an galli cantu, an mane.
Vigilate ergo, ne, cum venerit repente, inveniat vos dormientes.
Quod autem dico vobis, omnibus dico; Vigilate.
Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh,
at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning,
lest coming suddenly, he find you sleeping.
And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

Mark 13:35-37
