O beatum virum Martinum antistitem,
qui nec mori timuit, nec vivere recusavit.
Domine, si adhuc populo tuo sum necessarius,
non recuso laborem;
fiat voluntas tua.

O happy man, Bishop Martin!
Who neither feared death, nor refused to live.
Lord, if I can serve your people,
I will not refuse the task:
let your will be done.
