Quo vadis, quo progrederis, Usque quo progressura? Quo fugis, cur me deseris, Quo usque desertura? Mens levis, mens dura, Tecum delibera, Considera, Quam facundum Quam iocundum, Quanto dispendio De gaudio Subduxisti, Quod cepisti Non executura; Stultum Christi Delusisti Iustum proditura.
Sed tu quis es qui mussitas, Qui contra me gannire, Qui contra me non hesitas Iniuste superbire? Vas fumi, vas ire, Tecum delibera, Considera, Quam tumentem Quam fetentem Raptum de lubrico Non modico Te coegi Summo regi Prorsus obedire; Stulte feci Quod adieci Stulto subvenire.
Where do you go, where are you going, how far will you go? Where do you flee, why do you desert me, how long will you desert me? Light mind, hard mind, deliberate with yourself, consider, what an eloquent man, what a sweet man, you have stolen away from joy, and with what a loss, you who are not going to carry out that which you have undertaken; you have cheated the fool of Christ, you who are about to betray a just man.
But who are you who grumble, who do not hesitate to bark against me, and to be unjustly arrogant? Vessel of smoke, vessel of wrath, deliberate with yourself, consider, how swollen how stinking you were when I snatched you from the most slippery path and forced you to obey the Highest King; I acted foolishly in trying to help a fool.
