J'ay cherché la science
de prendre patience,
mais cette expérience
n'a guéri ma blessure.
Quelle peine est plus dure
que celle que j'endure?

Sacred contrafact (from Le thresor de musique d'Orlande de Lassus)
J'ai du ciel la science,
De prendre patience:
Et telle experience
A gueri ma blessure:
Combien que soit fort dure
La peine qui j'endure.
