Joissance vous donneray
mon ami et vous meneray
La ou pretent votre esperance
Vivant ne vous laisseray.
Encor quant mort ie seray
Si vous auray en souvenance.

Jouissance vous donnerai
mon ami, je vous mènerai
Là où prétend votre espérance
Vivante ne vous laisserai.
Encore quand mort je serai
Si vous aurai en souvenance.

English.png English translation

I will give you joy my friend,
and will take you
There where your hope lies.
I will not leave you while I live;
Nor again, when I am dead,
If you still remember (me).

(trans Timmi O'Danaos & Donna Ferrentes)

English.png English translation

Love’s climax will I give to you
My friend and I will lead you to
The target of your deep desire.
Alive I will not you eschew,
E’en when my time on Earth is through,
Love’s spirit will remain afire.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
