1  Belle, qui tiens ma vie captive dans tes yeux,
Qui m'a l'âme ravie d'un souriz gracieux,
Viens tôt me secourir, ou me faudra mourir.

2  Pourquoi fuis-tu, mignarde, si je suis près de toy?
Quand tes yeux je regarde, je me perds dedans moy,
Car tes perfections changent mes actions.

5  Approche donc, ma belle, approche toy mon bien.
Ne me sois plus rebelle, puisque mon coeur est tien,
Pour mon mal appaiser, donne moy un baiser.

6  Je meurs, mon Angelette, je meurs en te baisant,
Ta bouche tant doucette, va mon bien ravissant
A ce coup mes esprits sont tout d'amour épris.

7  Plutôt on verra l'onde contre mont reculer,
Et plutôt l'œil du monde cessera de brûler,
Que l'amour qui m'époint décroisse d'un seul point.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

1  Mijn lief, je houdt mijn bestaan met je blik gevangen,
Je verblindt me met je stralende glimlach,
Help me kom naar me toe, haal me uit mijn eenzaamheid.

2  Waarom blijf je zo schroomvallig als ik bij je ben,
Telkens ik in je ogen kijk, ben ik verloren,
Want al jouw volmaaktheden, brengen me van de wijs.

5  Kom toch dichterbij mijn lief, kom mijn schat,
En wees niet langer bevreesd, want mijn hart behoort jou toe,
Om mijn lijden te verzachten, geef me een zoen.

6  Ik besterf het, mijn engeltje, bij elke zoen,
Je mond is zo zacht en zo bekoorlijk,
Op slag is mijn geest van liefde beneveld.

7  Eerder nog zal een golf de berg op stromen,
En eerder nog de eeuwige zon uitdoven,
Dan dat ‘k in liefde voor jou te kort zou komen.

Translation by Jan Wyns

1  Beauty, you who hold my life captive in your eyes,
Who make my soul glad with a gracious smile,
Come soon rescue me, or I shall die.

2  Why are you fleeing, sweetheart, when I am close to you,
When your eyes I look, I get lost in myself,
For you perfections change my behaviour.

5  Come my beauty, come my wellbeing,
Don't reject me, for my heart is yours,
To appease my pain, give me a kiss.

6  I am dying my little angel, I am dying while kissing you,
Your mouth so soft makes me feel better
Then my soul is fulfilled with love.

7  Sooner the waves against mountains shall recede,
And sooner the world's eye shall cease to burn
Before the love exciting me shall decrease of one dot.

Esperanto.png Esperanto translation

1  Belin’ al kiu sklavas senhelpe mia viv’,
kaj kies rido ravas l’ animon per sorĉiv’:
rifuza via vort’ min pelus al la mort’.

2  Pro kio vi hezitas restadi apud mi?
Ju pli vi min evitas, des amo kreskas pli.
Pro via perfektec’ atakas min frenez’.

5  Alvenu do, belino, al mia ama kor’,
rezignu pri obstino kaj sombron prenu for.
Min levu el mizer’ per kiso de tener’.

Translation by Arjen-Sjoerd de Vries

German.png German translation

1  Schöne, die du mein Leben in deinen Augen gefangen hältst,
die meine Seele beglückt mit einem anmutigen Lächeln,
eile mich zu retten, oder ich werde sterben.

2  Was fliehst du, meine Kleine, wenn ich dir nahe bin?
Wenn ich deine Augen sehe, verliere ich mich in mir,
weil deine Vollkommenheit meine Taten verändert.

5  Komm doch näher, meine Schöne, nähere dich zu meinem Wohl.
sei mir nicht länger abhold, denn mein Herz ist dein.
Um mein Leiden zu lindern, gib mir einen Kuß.

6  Ich sterbe, mein Engelchen, ich sterbe, während ich dich küsse,
dein süßes Mündchen ist so entzückend,
und sofort ist meine Seele von Liebe eingenommen.

7  Eher wird man die Wellen bergauf fließen sehen,
eher wird das Auge der Welt (die Sonne) aufhören zu scheinen,
als daß die Liebe, die mich ergriffen hat, auch nur einen Deut schwindet.

Translation by Martin Schubert

Spanish.png Spanish text

1  Amor que me cautivas con tu dulce mirar,
tus plantas bendecidas voy rendido a adorar.
Si tu amor no me das, ya muerto me verás.

5  Ven a mí bella rosa, ven a mi corazón,
no seas desdeñosa, no turbes mi razón.
Dejaré de penar, si me quieres besar.

7  Antes verás cansadas las olas de la mar,
las noches estrelladas su brillo declinar,
que de mi corazón se apague la pasión.
