Dame Venus rendz le cueur amoureulx
De ma maistresse et de ton feu lenflamme
ou bien du mien retire ceste flamme
Tu me rendras content ou malheureux.

Frau Venus, mache das Herz meiner Geliebten verliebt,
und entflamme es mit deinem Feuer,
oder entziehe diese Flamme meinem.
Du wirst mich zufrieden oder unglücklich machen.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

Lady Venus, enamour the heart
of my beloved, and inflame it by your fire,
or withdraw that flame from mine.
You will make me content or miserable.
