TRANSLATION

O quam mirabilis est
prescientia divini pectoris
que prescivit omnem creaturam.
Nam cum Deus inspexit
faciem hominis quem formavit,
omnia opera sua
in eadem forma hominis
integra aspexit.
O quam mirabilis est inspiratio
que hominem sic suscitavit.
Oh how miraculous is
the foreknowing of the holy heart
which anticipated all creation.
For when God looked into
the face of the human he had created
he saw fulfilled
all of his works
in that same human form.
O how miraculous is the inspiration
which kindles human life.
