Original text and translations

French.png French text

Adieu celle que j’ai servi, à mon pouvoir, tout (de) mon vivant.
À qui je m’étais asservi, plus qu’à nulle autre auparavant.
De tout m’étais abandonné.
Si j’ai mal fait en vous servant, par Dieu,
qu’il me soit pardonné !

English.png English translation

Farewell she whom I served, as best I could, all my life.
To whom I was devoted, more than to any other before.
Forgoing all else.
Should I have done wrong by serving you, by God,
may I be excused!

Translation by Michael Nick
