Comme la poule assemble sous ses ailes
Les poulets siens, du Milan les gardant,
Ainsi aussi le Seigneur des fideles,
De l’Antechrist leur ennemi mordant.
Le Chrestien soit à ceci entendant.
Que si ailleurs il cherche seureté,
Cuidant fuir, il tombe sous la dent
De l’ennemi par sa temerité.

IBI LICET ESSE SECURIS

There they may be safe

lxxxiiii.

Gallina ut teneros alis tegit anxia pullos,
Ex alto accipiter cùm facit insidias:
Sic quoque curabit Christus, contraria nobis
Ne sceleratorum facta nocere queant.

As the anxious hen covers the fragile chicks with her wings when the hawk attacks from on high, so too Christ will will take care lest evil perpetrated by wicked people should be able harm us.
