Tel est le tamps
il sen fault contentes
en esperant
qu'ung aultre reviendra
car le souhait que iattens adviendra
qui fera tous mes regretz absenter

Modern French
Tel est le temps, il faut s'en contenter
en espérant qu'un autre reviendra
car mon souhait que j'attends
fera oublier tous mes regrets.

Those are our times, when we have to content ourselves
with hoping for better days.
And waiting for my hope
will let me forgive all my regrets.
