Comme le vent souvent nous bat l’oreille,
Et n’attaint point jusqu’au dedans du coeur,
Ainsi la voix du grand Dieu nompareille
N’a dedans nous ne force ne vigueur,
Si nostre coeur n’est touché du Seigneur,
Pour en chasser toute incredulité:
Et sans l’esprit de Dieu nostre enseigneur,
Nous n’en tirons aucune utilité.

FRUSTRA

In vain

xcvi.

Saepe levis teneram ventus circumsonat aurem,
Attamen haud penetrat pectoris ad latebras.
Nil audire juvat sacra quotquot scripta recensent,
Ni immittas animo suscipienda tuo.

Often a light wind strikes our delicate ears, yet fails to penetrate the recesses of the heart. It does not in any way help to hear sacred writings, however many, if you do not instal them to be adopted in your soul.
