À vous sans autre me viens rendre,
Il m’est force qu’ainsi le face.
À ce me contraint vostre grace,
Qui tant est belle, doulce et tendre.

Vueillez vo pitié condescendre,
Envers moi qui de prima face
Ne au moins pretendant estre en grace
En tant que honneur se peut estendre.

Le vous dire n’ose entreprendre,
Jamais en moi n’eust tant d’audace;

To you I come, alone,
With enough will to do so.
I need it, for your grace
Is so beautiful, soft and tender.

Please show some pity
For me who, prima facie,
Do not pretend at least to be graceful,
As much as honor can remain.

To say it I dare not to try,
Never in me has been so much audacity;
