Certa fortiter,
Ora ferventer,
Labora diligenter,
Stude frequenter,
Tace libenter,
Sustine patienter.

Stijd met kracht,
Bid met vuur,
Werk met ijver,
Streef met herhaling,
Zwijg met genoegen,
Verduur met geduld.

Fight with power,
Pray with fire
Work with zeal,
Strive with repetition,
Be silent with pleasure,
Endure with patience.
