Ayez pitié du grand mal que je endure
Pour vous servir, sans me vouloir blasmer;
Amour vous peult comme moy faire aymer,
Et du passé faire payer le usure.

English.png English translation

Have pity at the torment I endure
To serve you, and do not seek to chide me,
Love could also cause love to grow in thee,
And thus full payment for the past ensure.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
