Tout homme en soy est si láche & debile,
Qu’il a besoin d’estre appuyé d’enhaut.
Moise estoit sainct homme & bien habile,
Mais au besoin autre force luy faut.
Or pour pourvoir ŕ cestuy sien defaut,
Fut soustenu, & sur la pierre mis:
Lors Israel veinquit l’ennemi caut.
Fondés sur Christ veincrons tous ennemis.

FULCRUM OPTIMUM

The best support

lxxix.

Isacidum fessus coelo dux tollere palmas,
Sublimi saxo brachia composuit:
Et vicit: Christo quisquis confidet, & illo
Fulcitur, cuncto victor ab hoste cluet.

The leader of the sons of Isaac, tired of raising palms to heaven, brought his arms (=hands in prayer) together on the lofty rock; and he triumphed: whoever trusts in Christ, and is supported by Him, is esteemed as victor by all the enemy.
