Original text and translations

French.png French text

Content désir qui cause ma douleur,
heureux savoir qui mon travail renforce,
O fort amour, qui m'a rendu sans force,
donnez secours à ma peine et langueur.

English.png English translation

Sated desire that gives me but grief,
Happiness that doth my sadness enforce,
O pow’rful love that has drained me of force,
From my languor and pain grant me relief.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
