Original text and translations

Adieu celle que j’ai servie, à mon pouvoir, tout mon vivant,
à qui j’étais asservi plus qu’à nulle (autre) auparavant,
à vous, comme humble servant, de tout m’étais abandonné,
si j’ai mal fait en vous servant, pour Dieu, qu’il me soit pardonné.

English.png English translation

Farewell she whom I served, as best I could, all my life,
To whom I was devoted, more than to any before,
to you, as humble servant, forgoing all else,
should I have done wrong by serving you, by God, may I be excused.

Translation by Michael Nick
