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 impious,
for he was founded on a sure rock.
