Original text and translations

French.png French text

Cuidez vous que Dieu nous faille
pour despendre largement,
il a plus qu'il ne nous baille,
et nous a mis tout en taille
jusqu'au jour de jugement,
compaignons ne vous en chaille,
le terme vault bien l'argent.

Do you think that God faults us for spending lavishly?
There is much more to worry about
than that for which he takes us to task until the day of jugement.
Friends, let it not matter to you;
The goal is well worth the cost.
