O cruaulte logee en grand beaulte
o grand beaulte quie loges cruaulte
quant ma doleur iamais ne sentiras au moins ung iour
pense a loyaulte
ingrate' allors peutestre te diras.

Modern French
O cruauté logée en grande beauté
o grande beauté qui loge cruauté.
Quand ma douleur jamais ne sentira au moins un jour,
pense à ma loyauté,
peut-être te diras-tu ingrate.

English.png English translation

Oh cruelty that lies in beauty
oh beauty that harbours cruelty.
If only one day you would feel my pain,
remembering my loyalty,
then perhaps will you admit being ungrateful.
