Prudentius, Liber Cathemerinon, no. 2 (Hymnus Matutinus), lines 105-112 (tr. H.J. Thomson):
There is One that stands by watching from above, who each day views us and our doings from dawn of light till evening.

He is witness, He is judge; He looks on every thought the mind of man conceives, and this judge none can dupe.

speculator adstat desuper,        105
qui nos diebus omnibus
actusque nostros prospicit
a luce prima in vesperum.

hic testis, hic est arbiter,
hic intuetur quidquid est        110
humana quod mens concipit;
hunc nemo fallit iudicem.
