La foy en Christ est celle mesme pierre
Sur laquelle est basti tout l’edifice
Du temple sainct, comme dit Christ à Pierre:
C’est elle aussi par qui avons justice,
Qui à beaux fruicts produire est si propice,
Que d’elle sort ceste vive esperance,
Puis charité dont part en abondance.
Toute bonne oeuvre ennemie de vice.

MAXIMA
NON CONFUNDIT
JUSTIFICAT
CHRISTUS[1]

Greatest. ...maketh not ashamed. It is Christ that justifieth.

viii.

Christe, fide tibi non incerta credere, vivis
Esse doces saxis condere templa Deo.
Haec iustis aperit coelum, & succendit amore
Corda pio, viciis dum vetat esse locum.

Christ, you teach [us] to believe in you with a sure faith, to found temples to God with living stones. This [faith] opens up heaven to the just, and inflames their hearts with pious love, while it denies a place to vices.

Notes:

1.  Cf. 1 Corinthians 13:13; Romans 5:5 and 8:33
