Omnia Patienter Ferenda

Here is a distich by Michele Verinus:

Omnia Patienter Ferenda
Quod tibi contigerit, patienter ferre memento,
Cum certum est fieri numine cuncta Dei.

The vocabulary is keyed to the DCC Latin Vocabulary list. All the words in this poem are on that list:

certus -a -um: sure, fixed; certē, certainly, surely
contingō -tingere -tigī -tactum: touch, be contiguous to
cum: with (prep. + abl.); when, since, although (conjunction + subj.)
cūnctus -a -um: entire all together
deus -ī m.; dea -ae f. god; goddess
ferō ferre tulī lātum: bear, carry
fīō fierī factus sum: become
meminī meminisse: remember, recollect
nūmen -inis n.: divine will, deity
omnis -e: all, every, as a whole
patior patī passus sum: permit, endure
qui quae quod: who, which, what / quis quid: who? what? which?
sum, esse, fuī: be, exist
tū tuī tibi tē: you (sing.)
