De grand desir d’aller bien tost à Dieu,
Cestuy se voit presque sorty du monde:
Crainte de mort en son endroit n’a lieu,
Ainsi qu’elle a au coeur sale & immonde.
La mort n’est plus au chrestien sainct & monde
Qu’un doux passage à conduire à la vie
Et vray repos, où toute grace abonde:
Mais charité modere tell’envie.

DESIDERANS DISSOLVI

Desiring to depart

lxxxix.

Suave mori, quoties scelerum mens libera, nullum
Judicis horrescens judicium refugit.
Suave etenim Christo conjungi: et corpus humatum
Regno sublimè despicere aethereo.

It is sweet to die, whenever the mind/soul, free of sins, having no fear of judgment of the judge, takes flight. It is also sweet to be joined to Christ, and to look down at the buried body from the heavenly kingdom.
