TRANSLATION

O virtus Sapientie,
que circuiens circuisti,
comprehendendo omnia
in una via que habet vitam,
tres alas habens,
quarum una in altum volat
et altera de terra sudat
et tercia undique volat.
Laus tibi sit, sicut te decet,
O Sapientia.
Oh gravity of Wisdom,
whose encompassing orbit
revolves around all things
on a single circuit that bounds life around,
and you have three wings,
and has one wing that vaults into the sky,
and a second that sweeps over the earth,
and a third that pitches, rolls, and yaws in unison.
Praise be to you, as you deserve,
O Wisdom.
