Original text
Par trop souffrir de fortune ennemye
vis en regretz et me fauldra mourir
sy nay secours ou griefvement langueur
le demeurant de ma dolente vye

Modern French
En souffrant trop de fortune ennemie,
je vis en regrets
et il me faudra mourir
si je n'ai secours
ou grave langueur restera dans ma dolente vie.

English.png English translation

Suffering heavily from hostile fate,
I lead a life of regrets
leaving me but to die
if I can find no help
or else great sorrow will stay part of my sad life.
