Voicy qui veut que preud’homme on le pense
Pour son habit, monstrant simplicité.
Verité cache, & n’y a apparence
Qu’en son soleil ait rien qu’obscurité.
Ainsi en vain d’avoir Christ s’est vanté
Tout mal vivant, se nourrissant en vice:
Christ vray soleil n’est jamais sans clarté.
Où est la foy, tousjours suit la justice.

LUMINE CARENS

Lacking light

lv.

Philosophum longo simulans vestimine, falsa
Omnia de puro dogmata Sole refers.
Disce prius, quid sit verum cognoscere lumen,
Non nitet obscura nocte serena dies.

Looking like a philosopher in a long gown, you speak of all [kinds of] false teachings concerning the pure Sun (=Christ). Learn first to recognise what is the true light; bright day does not shine in dark night.
