Original text and translations

French.png French text

Secourez-moi Madame par amours
Ou autrement la mort me vient quérir.
Autre que vous ne peut donner secours
À mon las coeur lequel s'en va mourir.
Hélas, hélas, venez tôt secourir
Celui qui vit pour vous en grand tristesse,
Car de son coeur vous êtes la maîtresse.

English.png English translation

I prithee, Madame, save me with your care
Or otherwise I’m bound to end up dead.
The tender love of none but you can spare
My fervid heart from turning cold instead.
Alas, alas, come rescue from this dread
The one who waits for you in great distress,
For it is you who doth his heart possess.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
