Mir ist ein feins brauns megetlein,
gefalln in meinen sinn/
wolt Gott ich solt heint bey jr sein/
mein trawren fier dahin/
sol all mein traw verloren sein/
krenckt mir hertz, sinn und mut/
ich hoff sie sols erfahren schier/
mein sach sol werden gut.

A fine brown maiden
has come into my mind.
By God, I would like to be with her.
all my longing strives to that.
Should all my costancy be in wain
it would hurt my heart, sense and feelings.
I hope she would find out my feelings
and that my case would go well.
