En espoir vis et crainte me tourmente
ung iour ie ris et lautre ie lamente
vostre doulx oeil me faict bien esperer
mais mon grief mal me contrainct souspirer

Modern French
En espoir vis et crainte me tourmente.
Un jour je ris, et l'autre, je lamente.
Votre doux oeil me fait bien espérer,
mais mon grave mal me constraint à soupirer.

I live with hope, yet fear torments me.
One day I laugh, another I cry.
Your gentle eye gives me hope,
yet my grave suffering causes me to sigh.
