Ces fiers lions un agneau ja tout grand
Avoyent ravy, s’en cuidans bien repaistre,
Mais son berger, la bride leur tirant,
Les empescha de la dent sur luy mettre.
Ainsi t’a fait le grand Pasteur & maistre
Desja deux fois, ô Prince debonnaire.
Ne sois ingrat, mais fay à tous cognoistre
Que tu le sers d’un coeur tresvolontaire.

DEUS SUPERBIS RESISTIT
HUMILIBUS DAT GRATIAM[1]

God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble

xxviii.

Rapta pecus geminos pavisset forte leones,
Ni servata foret eripiente Deo.
Ille animi fastus crudeles comprimit: ille
Subiectos placida commiseratur ope.

The flock would perhaps have been taken and feared the two lions if it had not been saved by God snatching it away. He suppresses the cruel pride of the soul; he pities with his calm strength those that are cast down.

1.  James 4:6; 1 Peter 5:6
