Δώροις, λόγοις, ἔργοις τε, καὶ εὐποιΐαις
ἅπαν γένος βρότειον εὖ, καθὼς ἔδει,
τρέφων, ἰθύνων σὺν Θεῷ ποδηγέτῃ
ζωὴν παρεῖχες τὴν κάτω τὴν γηΐνην·
ἤδη δὲ ταύτην παριδὼν ὡς ἀγχίνους
ζητῶν τὰ θεῖα, οὗ ποθεῖς προσορμίσαι
ψυχῶν ὁδηγὸς νῦν ἄνω φαίνῃ ξένος
τούτοις, κράτιστε, τοῖς λόγοις τοῖς πανσόφοις.

Recte totum mortale genus, ut decebat,
Enutriens, dirigensque ad Dei nutum,
Vitam hanc terrenam transigebas.
Sed iam hac omissa cura solerter
Quaeris divina, ad quae optas accedere,
Et animarum nunc fis novus ductor ad caelum,
His, optime, sapientissimis sermonibus.
