Modern French
Si mon malheur continue,
je ne sais et ne dis pas ce que je ferai.
Au moins je changerai,
si le courage n'y diminue.

English.png English translation

If misfortune o’er me prevails,
I do not know, I will not say what I intend.
At the least my ways I shall mend,
Save if my courage to do so fails.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
