Mon seul espoir le plaisir de ma vie
a quoy disant laisses cela me tentes
respondes moy si n(m?)e refusant mie
Innocemment a mes desirs consentes
amour loyal touiours me presentens.

Modern French
Mon seul espoir, le plaisir de ma vie,
à quoi disant laissez cela me tenter,
répondez-moi si mon amie me refuse.
Innocemment à mes désirs consentez,
amour loyal toujours me présentez.

My only hope and pleasure of my life,
to whom I address my call: please tempt me.
Give heed to my calling when my friend turns me down,
in all you innocence give in to my desires
and always grant me your loyal love.
