=PONDERIBUS= genuus omne mali, probriq; gravatus, Vixq; ferenda ferens , =Palma= ut =depressa=, resurgo. Ac, velut undarum =Fuctûs Ventìque=, furorem Irati Populi =Rupes immotta= repello . =Clarioré tenebris=, c[oe]lestis stella, corusco. Victor æternum f[oe]lici pace =triumpho=. Auro =fulgentem= rutilo gemmisque micantem, At curis =Gravidam= spernendo =calco Coronam=. =Spinosam=, at =ferri facilem=, quo =spes mea=, Christi Auxilio, Nobis non est =tractare= molestum . =Æternam=, fixis fidei, semperque =beatam= In C[oe]los occulis =specto=, Mobìsque paratam.

THOUGH clogg'd with weights of miseries, Palm like depress'd , I higher rise. And as th' unmoved Rock out braves The boyst'rous winds , and raging waves ; So triumph I . And shine more bright In sad Affliction's darksom night. That splendid , but yet toilsome Crown , Regardlesly I trample down. With joy I take this Crown of Thorn , Though sharp , yet easie to be born . That heav'nly Crown , already mine, I view with eyes of faith divine. I slight vain things; and do embrace Glory , the just reward of Grace .
