Θεῷ χάρις τῷ δόντι τέρμα τῇ βίβλῳ·
μόνῳ γὰρ αὐτῷ τὰ καλὰ προσαπτέα.
πᾶς γοῦν χάριν ἐν πᾶσι τῷ Θεῷ νέμε·
πάντα γὰρ αὐτοῦ καὶ σαφῶς δεδραγμένα,
γνωστὰ δὲ τούτῳ πάμπαν ὥσπερ αἰτίῳ.
μόνην τὸ λοιπὸν ἅπας εὐχήν μοι νέμε,
νεμεῖν δὲ χάριν ἐκ Θεοῦ ζητῶ μόνου.

Omnia enim ab ipso facta esse manifestum est,

Gratiam vero a Deo solo peropto accipere.
