Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Iste sanctus pro lege Dei sui,
certavit usque ad mortem
et a verbis impiorum non timuit,
fundatus enim erat supra firmam petram.

English.png English translation

This is a saint who, for the law of his God,
strove even unto death
and feared nothing from the words of the ungodly,
for he was founded on a strong rock.
