O quam mirabilis est prescientia divini pectoris
que prescivit omnem creaturam.

O quam mirabilis est inspiratio,
que hominem sic suscitavit.

How wondrous is the prescience of the divine heart
which foreknew every creature.

How wondrous is the breath of inspiration
by which humanity was awakened.

Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179)
