Mal et soucy, peine et douleur,
dueil, désespérance mortelle,
trembler, pâlir, muer couleur,
fièvre blanche continuelle,
sont les biens que j'ay de la belle
pieça souffert, las, douloureux,
la mort, pourquoy ne me prend-elle,
quant amour m'est tant rigoureux?

Modern French
Mal et souci, peine et douleur,
deuil, désespoir mortel,
trembler, pâlir, muer couleur,
fièvre blanche continuelle,
sont les biens que j'ai de la belle,
longtemps souffert, hélas, douloureux.
La mort, pourquoi ne me prend-elle pas
quand l'amour m'est tant rigoureux?

English.png English translation

Discomfort and worries, suffering and pain,
mourning, deadly hoplessness,
trembling, turning pale and changing colours,
endless killing fever,
those are the gifts my beautiful has left me
in long and painful suffering, alas.
O death, why do you not come for me
when love is so strict to me?
