Nun tarde veniet, tacita sed mente tenendum
Hoc opus, hoc memori semper, qui corde reponet,
Huius pertendant cor gaudia magna Prophetae
Eximii, qui virginea conceptus ab alvo
Prodibit, sine contactu maris omnia vincit
Hoc naturae opera, at fecit, qui cuncta gubernat.

Sibylle de Delphes
Language: French (Français) after the Latin
Il ne viendra pas tard, mais il doit être gardé en secret
Cet acte ; celui qui le mettra dans son cœur pour toujours
D'une grande joie son cœur sera rempli par les Prophètes
Éminents, conçu dans le ventre d'une vierge
Il se présentera, sans le contact d'un homme, ceci vainc
Les actes de la nature, mais c'est celui qui gouverne tout qui l'a fait.
