St. Hildegard of Bingen

st hildegard believeSong to the Creator

You, all-accomplishing

Word of the Father,

Are the light of primordial

daybreak over the spheres.

You, the foreknowing

mind of divinity,

foresaw all your works

as you willed them,

your prescience hidden

in the heart of your power,

your power like a wheel around the world,

whose circling never began

and never slides to an end.

(tr. by Barbara Newman)
