Ung souvenir me confort'et contente,
car où que soie, ou pour chose que fasse,
ung seul penser a prins en mon cueur place,
pour le guider à chief de son attente.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
Sweet comfort it is that memory to renew!
Whate’er I do, in any place or part,
A single thought is lodged within my heart
To guide it to the end it has in view.
