While palsied limbs and chattels lost
Both young and old recovered boast.
And perils perish, plenty’s hoard,
Is heaped on hunger’s famished board
Let those relate who know it well,
Let Padua of her patron tell.
The hungry seas forgo their prey,..
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
The hungry seas forgo their prey,……
