Colligit, ac monitis cavit quæ regula patrum
Sedulus instituit, multisque domique, forisque
Jactatus nimium per tempora longa periclis,

He brought, and strictly taught their founder's rules.
In lapse of years, by many dangers tossed,
At home by discords, and in foreign realms,
Having sat bishop five and forty years,
He died, and joyful sought the realms above;
That, blessed by Christ, and favour'd with his aid,
The flock may follow in their pastor's path.
