Adieu ! mes amours et mon désir,
Je vous déprise de part amant ;
Et si je vous ai fait déplaisir,
Ce n’est pas sans commandement.
Pardonnez-moi très humblement, je le demande ;
J’ai mis mon cœur à service loyalement.
Hélas ! J’ai bien perdu ma peine.

Farewell my loves and my desire,
I abandon you as a loved one.
And if I have caused you displeasure,
it is not without bidding.
I ask forgiveness humbly.
I have loyally put my heart to your service.
Alas! I have truly wasted my effort.
