Domine, quinque talenta tradidisti mihi:
ecce alia quinque superlucratus sum.
Euge serve fidelis,
quia in pauca fuisti fidelis,
supra multa te constituam,
intra in gaudium domini tui.

(Matth.25:20,21)

Lord, thou didst deliver to me five talents,
behold I have gained other five over and above.
Well done, good and faithful servant,
because thou hast been faithful over a few things,
I will place thee over many things:
enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

(Rheims New Testament, 1582)
