Old French
Voiant souffrir celle qui me tourmente
iay oublie mon mal
pour consoler le sien
car son ennui plus fort me contente
que celuy la que pour elle soustien

Modern French
Voyant souffrir celle qui me tourmente,
j'ai oublié mon mal
pour consoler le sien.
Car son ennui me contente plus fort
que celui que je tiens à cause d'elle.

English.png English translation

Seeing her suffer who torments me,
I put aside my suffering
to console hers.
For I revel in her misery
much more that in my own, which she caused.
