S'habit des seuls seront mis a neant,
Le grand Monarque chastiera leur frenaisie,
Ravir des temples le thresor par devant.

The verses refer to a period in time, when the accepted truths behind many of mankind's religions are proven to be false, based on the ancient lies perpetuated by the Ancients to justify churches and governments and kings, and to keep poor people in a state of ignorance and obedience.
Eyes closed, to be opened to ancient fantasies,
The habits of the solitary ones will be proven meaningless,
The great monarch will chastise their frenzy,
Ravishing their treasures before the temples.
