Buddhābhisekagāthā

Buddha

abhiseka = consecration, ablution

gāthā = verses

“Verses on the consecration of the Buddha”

That’s my rough translation.
“Mendicants, I do not see a single thing that, when it’s not tamed, is so very harmful as the mind. A wild mind is very harmful.”

See the book "Becoming the Buddha" by Donald Swearer.

Becoming the Buddha discusses the text, but it didn't provide the translation.
