Original text and translations

Craint’ et Espoir m’oppressent grandement,
car nonobstant que j’aime loyalement
Crainte ne veut que plus amour je suive,
mais bon Espoir me dit que je poursuive
et qu’à la fin j’aurai allégement.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

Hoop en Vrees beklemmen mij zeer
Want niettegenstaande ik oprecht bemin,
Wil Vrees dat ik geen enkele liefde meer volg,
Maar goede Hoop zegt me dat ik door moet gaan,
en dat ik uiteindelijk troost zal vinden.

Fear and Hope oppress me greatly,
because though I sincerely love,
Fear does not want me to follow any love,
But good Hope tells me to carry on,
and that in the end I will find comfort.
