Original text
Malgre moy vis
et en vivant ie meurs
de iour en iour se changent mes douleurs
tant qu'en vivant
trop longue mest la vie
mourir ie crains et le vivre mennuye
ainsi me tiens en paine' et en langueurs

Modern French
Malgré moi, je vis
et en vivant, je meurs.
De jour en jour se changent mes douleurs,
tant qu'en vivant, trop longue m'est la vie.
Je crains la mort et la vie m'ennuie
ainsi me tient en peine et en langueur.

English.png English translation

I live despite myself,
yet living causes me to die.
Every day other pains torment me,
and though alive, life is too long.
I fear death, yet life annoys me
as it holds me captive in pain and suffering.
