Original text
AvecqZ vous mon amour finira
puis que mon cueur est en vous seulement
plaise vous donc avoir contentement
car le corps mort
lesprit vous servira.

Note: the Susato edition has "AvecZ" as first word. The highly stylized "Z" might be an abbreviation for the traditional ending "-ues".

Modern French
Avec vous mon amour finira
Puisque mon cœur est en vous seulement.
Plaise vous donc d'avoir contentement
Car si le corps meurt, l'esprit vous servira.

Sacred contrafact (from Le thresor de musique d'Orlande de Lassus)
Aveques Dieu mon amour finira,
Mon coeur aussi est en lui seulement:
Plaise lui donc avoir contentement,
Si le corps meurt, l'esprit lui servira.

You will be my last love ever
since my heart belongs only to you.
So please, be satisfied with it
for when my body dies, my soul will still belong to you.
