Naufragum[1] apprensus littora adusque tulit.[2]

Double danger have I escaped by careful use of one set of arms, when I was hard-pressed on dry land and when I was in dire straits amidst the swelling billows. My shield brought me safe from the battle. The same shield, when I seized it, carried me, ship-wrecked, right to the shore.


Ein immerwerende Hülff.

Auß zweyen gfahr und nöten groß
Bin ich mit einerley Waffen bloß
Fleissig entrunnen da ich sehr
Gedrenget war zu Landt und Meer
Mich hat bhüt mein guter Schild
In dem streit vor dem feinde wild
Er hat mich auch durch Meeres Well
Auß dem Schiffbruch ans gstad bracht schnell.
