The immortals know no care, yet the lot they spin for man is full of sorrow; on the floor of Jove's palace there stand two urns, the one filled with evil gifts, and the other with good ones.... He for whom Jove, the Lord of thunder, mixes the gifts he sends, will meet now with good and now with evil fortune.

Present, and of His presence many a sign still following thee,
Still compassing thee round with goodness and paternal Love.
