„Take him, earth, for cherishing,
To thy tender breast receive him.
Body of a man I bring thee,
Noble even in its ruin.“

—  Prudentius, "Hymnus X: Ad Exequias Defuncti", line 125 ; translation from Helen Waddell Mediaeval Latin Lyrics (London: Constable, [1929] 1943) p. 45.
Original

Nunc suscipe, terra, fovendum,<br/>gremioque hunc concipe molli.<br/>Hominis tibi membra sequestro,<br/>generosa et fragmina credo.
