Pource tant eslongnés de Dieu sommes,
Qu’impossible est à nous de l’aprocher,
Naistre il a fait son fils semblable aux hommes,
Fors qu’il est net, & exempt de pecher.
Qui se veut donc de peché depescher,
Et de Satan fuir la servitude,
S’en vienne à Christ pour sa soif estancher:
Car nous puisons tous de sa plenitude.

DE PLENITUDINE EIUS.[1]

Of His fulness.

iii.

Quò fugis, incerto mutans vestigia gressu?
Iusticiae vivo fonte requiris aquas?
Huc ades, optatos pleno cratere liquores
Hìc bibe, iustificae fons ubi vivus aquae.

Where are you to flee, treading with uncertain steps? Do you seek the waters from the living fountain of salvation? Come here, drink the longed for liquid with a full cup, here where the living fountain of saving water flows.

1.  John 1:16
