English term or phrase: Above all Godliness
This is for a logo, with the meaning that Godliness is the virtue above or before all others. But I don't want virtue mentioned, just: Above all Godliness

above all godliness
pobożność przede wszystkim


Explanation:
To może być jeszcze ewentualnie coś bardziej w kierunku „bojaźni Bożej”, ale nie wydaje mi się. Z „bojaźnią Bożą” już łączyłoby się raczej „nade wszystko”, być może w innym szyku, np. „nade wszystko bojaźń Boża”. Zależy od przeznaczenia, czy to bardziej na luzie, czy konserwatywnie. No i czy rzeczywiście pobożność, czy coś troszkę innego. Dlatego tylko medium dałem.

Z drugiej strony same obserwancje nie otrzymałyby chyba takiej rangi, można byłoby przecież wyjść na dewota. Koniecznie trzeba dopytać o kontekst. Jeżeli znaczeniowo pasuje tutaj ta „bojaźń Boża”, no to jesteśmy w domu.

above all godliness
pietas (erga Deum) ante omnia


Explanation:
'Erga Deum' ('towards God') may be omitted. Latin 'pietas' is rarely used in the sense of its English derivative 'piety' but normally includes the whole concept of 'godliness' in regard both to deities and to the proper moral behaviour of human beings towards and with one another.
