Las ne fauldra cest chose toutte seure
donnes luy foy si ne voules qu'il meure.
Car aultrement sa leaulte fera
que ta rigueur chascun aperchevera.

Modern French
Hélas, il faudra, c'est chose toute sûre,
lui donner la foi si ne voulez qu'il meure.
Car autrement sa loyauté fera
que chacun apercevera ta rigueur.

English.png English translation

Alas, it is for certain
that you have to give him hope if you don't want him dead.
Otherwise his loyalty
will show to all your cruelty.
