Sanctus Bartholomaeus,
qui princeps exstitit soli,
natus alto genere,
manet adhuc princeps poli,
tectus agni velere. [ should be vellere. ]
Hic nam Indos convertebat
verbo salutifero,
daemonesque confundebat
facto nimis aspero.

Saint Bartholomew,
who emerged as a prince upon earth,
being born of high rank,
remains still a prince in heaven,
covered in the lamb's fleece.
For he converted the people of India
with the saving word,
and brought ruin to demons
with very severe acts.
Translation by David J. Clark
