Du grand peril des vens & de la mer,
Cest homme a bien cognoissance tresclaire,
Et ne craind point de se voir abismer,
Puis que son Dieu l’adresse & luy esclaire.
Nul, qui en Dieu remet tout son affaire,
Ne se verra despourveu de secours.
Mais cestui-la qui fera le contraire,
Sera confus par son propre recours.

QUEM TIMEBO[1]

Whom shall I fear?

xi.

Quamlibet iratos, venti, exercete furores:
Tuta tamen summis cymba natabit aquis:
Nec tumidos metuet fluctus, nam lucida coelo
Fax micat, optatae dux mihi certa viae.

Winds, rage on, as furious as you wish, but the boat will ride safely over the waves. It will not fear the seething waters for in the sky the bright torch shines out as a certain guide for me of the desired path.

Notes:

1.  Psalm 26 (27):1
