Jouissance vous donnerai
mon ami, je vous mènerai
Là où prétend votre espérance
Vivante ne vous laisserai.
Encore quand mort serai
L'esprit en aura souvenance.

I will give you joy my friend,
and will take you
There where your hope lies.
I will not leave you while I live.
And, when I am dead,
My spirit will still remember.

(trans Timmi O'Danaos & Donna Ferrentes)

English.png English translation

Love’s climax will I give to you
My friend and I will lead you to
The target of your deep desire.
Alive I will not you eschew,
E’en when my time on Earth is through,
Love’s spirit will remain afire.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
