Soyons joyeux sur la plaisant' verdure,
A ce beau may tant doux, tant frais et gay,
Il réjouit tout coeur qui dueil endure,
Soyons joyeux sur la plaisant' verdure.

Sacred contrafact (from Le thresor de musique d'Orlande de Lassus)
Soions joieux sur la plaisant' verdure,
Chantons à Dieu tant doux et gracieux,
Il resjouit tout coeur qui dueil endure.
Soions joieux sur la plaisant' verdure.
