Original text
Vous larez sil vous plaist ma dame
mon cueur mon corps mon bien mon ame
vous larez a vostre habandon
sil vous plaist me faire le don
de ce qui est plus doulx que blasme

Modern French
Vous l'aurez, s'il vous plaît, madame,
mon coeur, mon corps, mes biens, mon âme.
Vous l'aurez à votre abandon,
s'il vous plaît de me faire le don
de ce qui est plus doux que baume.

English.png English translation

You shall have it as you please, madam,
my heart, my body, my goods and my sou.
You shall have them and possess them fully
if only you'll grant me
that which is softer than balm.
