Modern French
Je l’aime bien et l’aimerai,
en ce propos suis et serai,
et resterai (demourai) toute ma vie
et quoi qu’on m’en dise par envie,
je l’aime bien et l’aimerai.

Sacred contrafact (from Le thresor de musique d'Orlande de Lassus)
J'aime mon Dieu, et l'aimerai,
En ce propos suis et serai,
Et demourai toute ma vie:
Et quoi que lon m'en porte envie,
J'aime mon Dieu, et l'aimerai.

I love her and I always will,
for now and for whatever time may come.
I will not yield for the remainder of my life
and no matter what envious tongues might tell,
I love her and I always will.

German.png German translation

Ich liebe dich, meins Lebens Zier,
in steter Treu ergeben dir,
bis zu des Herzens letztem Schlag.
Was auch der Neider flüstern mag,
ich liebe dich, meins Lebens Zier.

Miluji tě a budu tě milovat tak,
jako že jsem a budu.
Celý můj život bude toho důkazem,
ať mne potká cokoli.
