Comme le fer s’esleve par l’aymant,
L’homme est de Dieu par Christ tiré aussi.
Ne soit donc pas rien de soy presumant:
Car rien n’y a de sa nature icy.
Christ vray aymant en haut l’esleve ainsi,
Non sa vertu, ny oeuvre, ny merite.
Ce qui est sien, c’est mal qui Dieu irrite.
Bref, il n’a rien que par grace & merci.

NON TUIS VIRIBUS

Not by your own strength

v.

Magnetis ferrum versatur viribus: & nos
Ad Christum trahimur, commiserante Deo.
Ergo tua ne te speres vi vivere: vitam
Sed tibi concessam munere nosce Dei.

The iron is held with the strength of the magnet; and we, through God’s compassion, are drawn to Christ. So you should not hope to live by your own strength but learn that life has been granted to you through God’s gift.
