Bon jour, bon mois, bon an et bonne estraine
Vous doinst celuy qui tout tient en demaine,
Richesse, honnour, sainté, joye sans fin,
Bonne fame, belle dame, bon vin,
Pour maintenir la créature saine.
Après vous doint qu’en joye on vous demaine
Et lyesse tantost on vous ameine;
Ainsi pourrez avoir, soir et matin,
Bon jour, bon mois, bon an et bonne estraine
Vous doinst celuy qui tout tient en demaine,
Richesse, honnour, sainté, joye sans fin.
Et puis vous doint esperance certaine
Sans tristesse, sans pensee villaine;
Tous voz desirs acomplir de cueur fin.
Sans contredit soyez en la parfin
Lassu logee en gloire souveraine.

Good day, good month, good year and happy New Year
Be given by He to whom all belongs,
Riches, honour, health, boundless joy,
Good fame, beautiful lady, good wine,
To keep the creature in health.
And then may He have joy bestowed upon you
And you be given happiness soon
Thus may you have, night and morning,
Good day, good month, good year and happy New Year
Be given by He to whom all belongs,
Riches, honour, health, boundless joy.
And then may he give you certain hope
Without sadness, without ugly thoughts;
that all your desires be achieved of pure heart
Without doubt you will in perfection
Be received above (in heaven) in sovereign glory.
