O sapientia quae ex ore Altisimi prodiisti,
attingens a fine usque ad finem fortiter,
suaviterque disponens omnia.
Veni ad docendum nos viam prudentiae. Amen.

O wisdom which comes from the mouth of the Most High,
extending strongly from pole to pole,
which orders all things fittingly.
Come and teach us the way of prudence. Amen.
