De ceste foy sort une Tousjours-vive,
Monstrant par là n’estre point chose morte,
Ce n’est pas foy celle qu’on voit oysive,
Et qui beaux fruicts en sa saison n’apporte.
Sainct Jacques donc accorde en ceste sorte
Avec Sainct Paul, que la foy justifie:
Rien de justice à l’oeuvre ne rapporte.
L’oeuvre est peché sans la foy, ne t’y fie.

SINE OPERIBUS MORTUA EST
CHRISTUS[1]

...without works it is dead.

ix.

Viva fides, usuque & fructu commoda multo,
Proficit: at nullum mortua praestat opus.
Iusticiam dat viva fides: sed mortua damnat.
Ergo tuam factis disce probare fidem.

Living faith, profitable for its use and its plentiful fruit, is advantageous, but dead [faith] produces no effect. Living faith brings salvation, but dead brings damnation. So learn to test your faith by deeds.

Notes:
