Si Jesus-Christ n’eust esclairé nostre ombre,
Comme cestuy, nous serions endormis,
Et reputez d’entre les morts au nombre:
Mais de sa grace il ne l’a point permis.
Puis qu’il nous a hors de tenebres mis,
Et donné foy pour à luy nous conduire.
Prions tousjours que n’y soyons remis,
Et que sur nous sa clarté face luire.

SURGE, ILLUCESCET TIBI
CHRISTUS

Arise, and Christ shall give thee light (Ephesians 5:14)

lvii.

Te sine, perpetua mortales nocte jacerent:
Sed jucunda redit lumine vita tuo.
Hoc animos succende (precor) tibi, Christe, potestas
Haec data, ne nobis excidat alma Fides.

Without you, mortals would lie in perpetual night: but life is made a thing to be rejoiced in by your light. Kindle our minds with this [light], I pray, O Christ; this power has been given you lest nourishing Faith should fail us.
