Ceste foy haute & surpassant le Monde
Est pour monstrer qu’elle est victorieuse
Sus iceluy, quoy qu’en malice abonde.
Je say que c’est chose fort ennuyeuse
Que suporter la rage furieuse
Du monde ingrat, Satan & nostre chair:
Mais puis que foy en a victoire heureuse
(Par Jesus Christ) rien ne nous doit facher.

ET HEC EST VICTORIA QUE VICIT[1]

This is the victory that overcometh...

vi.

Solus homo adverso pugnabat fortiter hosti,
Sed non evaluit vincere, fixus humo.
Tum medios sese iniecit Servator in hostes,
Victricem tollens sidera ad usque Fidem.

Man alone was fighting strongly against the opposing enemy, but he was not able to conquer, being held to the earth. Then the Saviour threw Himself into the midst of the enemies, raising conquering faith up to the stars.
