Si mon service a merité
recompense ou allegement,
je vous supplye avoir pitié
en me donnant contentement,

me laisser vivre en languissant
desormais seroit cruaulté,
contentez vous en congnoissant
mon amour et ma fermeté.

Modern French
Si mon service a mérité
récompense ou allègement,
je vous supplie d’avoir pitié
en me donnant contentement.

Me laisser vivre en languissant,
désormais serait cruauté.
Contentez-vous en (re-)connaissant
mon amour et ma fermeté [:valeur].

English.png English translation

If my services have merited reward or comfort,
I beg you to have mercy
and grant me pleasure.
Letting me live with hot desire
would henceforth be plain cruelty.
So content yourself and acknowledge
my love and valour.
