Men: Tell us, O women, we would know
Whither so fast ye move?
Women: We, callíd to leave the world below,
Are seeking one above.
Men: Whence came ye, say, and what the place

Choir: Friends of the bridegroom, we shall reign;
Saviour, we ask no more.

Women: We seek a better country far,
A city built by God.
Thither we travel, nor intend,
Short of that bliss, to rest.
Men: Nor we, ítill in the sinnerís friend
Our weary souls are blessíd.
