Si tu voulois accorder la demande
que plusieurs fois je t'ay faict humblement
de retenir mon cueur a ta commande
ce me seroit heureulx contentement.

Si tu voulais accorder la demande
que plusieurs fois je t'ai fait humblement
de retenir mon cœur à ta commande
cela me serait heureux contentement.

How many times, and humbly, have I pledged
My heart to you, if you would but consent!
Say but the word and yours it is to command:
Though my love be great, greater then my content.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
