Original text and translations

French.png French text

Sortes mes pleurs hastes vous de descendre
dessus le feu qui me consomme et ard
ou mon secours arrivera trop tard
que cependant le seray mis en cendre

Modern French
Sortez, mes larmes, hâtez-vous de descendre
sur le feu qui me consûme et me brûle,
ou mon secours arrivera trop tard
car pendant ce temps
je serai mis en cendres.

English.png English translation

Come forth, my tears, hasten to fall down
upon the fire that burns and consumes me,
otherwise all help will come too late
for in that short time
I will be reduced to ashes.
