The ship arrived from the expanse of the sea,
From the wave and every tri-wave,
To the narrows of the sweetest haven,
Having forgotten every squall of the waves.
Now, too, the scribe of the present codex,
Having handed over to forgetfulness the long labors of writing,
Acquits himself of every grief as enjoyment
And allots to the trinity an unceasing hymn.
