Par vray amour tout l’Univers est faict,
Et par luy seul tout est entretenu,
Par luy aussi tout conduict & parfaict,
Et de luy seul aussi tout soustenu.
Qui à ceci cognoistre est parvenu,
En admirant ceste bonté divine,
Rejettera ce fol qu’on bande nu,
Cause de mal, & de toute ruine.

SUBLATO AMORE OMNIA RUUNT

When love is removed, all things tumble down

xlv.

Dius amor solida Mundum compage reuninxit:
Idem & inoffenso foedere cuncta tenet.
Hic si cui casta susceptus mente sedebit:
Illinc continuo coecus abibit amor.

Divine love has bound the world together in a firm union, and love too holds everything in an odious covenant; if it is undertaken with a pure mind it will abide, whereas blind love will continually take flight.
