Original text and translations

French.png French text

Je suis aymé de la plus belle,
Qui soit vivant dessoubz les Cieulx,
Encontre tous faulx Envieulx
Je la soustiendray estre telle.

Modern French
Je suis aimé par la plus belle
qui soit vivante sous les cieux,
à l'encontre de tous faux ennuyeux,
je la soutiendrai à rester telle.

Loved am I by the fairest girl
Who ever walked beneath the Skies,
Malicious tongues may spin their lies
I’ll guard her as I would a pearl.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
