Original text
Pour une las iendure
pensant de mieux avoir
la chose mest trop dure
lon peut aperchevoir
le mal en a souffrance
le quel me fault souffrir
si ie nay allegiance
il me fauldra mourir.

Modern French
Pour une, hélas, j'endure
pensant de mieux avoir,
la chose m'est trop dure:
on peut apercevoir,
le mal en a souffrance.
Lequel me faut souffrir:
si je n'ai allègement,
il me faudra mourir.

English.png English translation

It is for one, alas, that I should suffer.
Having hoped to obtain better,
I now endure my hardship
and as all can see:
the wicked has to suffer
to this great extent.
Without any solace,
only death is left to me.
