Hi sunt quos habuimus aliquando
in risu et in similitudine inproperii
nos insensati vitam illorum aestimabamus insaniam
quomodo conputati sunt inter filios Dei sors illorum est

Translation: The Douay-Rheims Bible, Book of Wisdom 5:3b, 4a, 5a,c.

These are they, whom we had sometime in derision,
and for a parable of reproach.
We fools esteemed their life madness, .
Behold, how they are numbered among the children of God.
