Incessament livre suis a martire
triste et pensif tousiours mon mal empire
ainsi dolent me conduit desplaisir
celle qui peult ne veult me secourir
mon malheur est de tous autres le pire

Modern French
Incessament suis livré à martyre
triste et pensif, toujours mon mal empire.
Ainsi dolent déplaisir me conduit,
celle qui peut, ne veut me secourir.
Mon malheur est de tous les autres le pire.

English.png English translation

I suffer incessantly from martyrdom,
through sad thoughts my pains worsen steadily.
And suffering thus, I am lead by discomfort
and she who might cure it, wants it not.
My suffering is worse than anyone's.
