Voicy qui est troussee sur ses reins,
Voulant par l monstrer sa diligence.
Chandelles a brulantes en ses mains,
Les opposant l’obscure ignorance.
Elle n’a point avec elle accointance.
Ains veut veiller en attendant son maistre.
Veillons aussi, & chassons nonchalance,
Le maistre vient, & ja se fait paroistre.

VIGILATE

Keep watch

li.

Excutite, admoneo, pulsa caligine, somnos:
Judicis advenit tempus & hora Dei.
O vigiles aperite animos, incuria ne vos
Impia terribili deprimat exitio.

Shake off sleep, I warn you, with darkness driven away. The time and the hour of God the judge is at hand. O watchful ones, open your hearts, lest faithless carelessness should weigh you down with terrible ruin.
