Mijn herteken heeft altijts verlanghen
naer u, die alderliefste mijn.
Ghij houdt mijn herteken bevanghen,
u vrij eigen willic sijn.
Voor al die wereldt ghemeene,
zo wie dat horet ofte siet,
heb dij mijn hertken alleene,
daeromme bidde ic u, vergheedt mij niet.

My heart longs for you unceasingly,
my beloved;
you have my heart in thrall:
let me be your vassal.
It is common knowledge –
no one who hears or sees it can be in any doubt –
that my heart is yours alone:
therefore, I beg you, forget me not.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
