Long temps y a que je vys en espoir,
Et que Rigueur a dessus moy pouvoir :
Mais si jamais je rencontre Allegeance
Je luy diray, Ma Dame venez veoir :
Rigueur me bat, faictes m'en la vengeance.

Modern French
Il y a longtemps que je vis en espoir
et que je suis dans le pouvoir
de la rigueur,
mais si jamais je rencontre l'allégance
je dirai à ma dame:
"Venez voir, rigueur me bat,
faites-moi la vengeance."

English.png English translation

Too long it’s been since hope has filled my days,
And since I fell beneath a foul Malaise;
But should sweet Solace ever come to me
To her I’ll say, My Lady, cast your gaze:
Malaise torments me, prithee set me free.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
