Original text and translations

French.png French text

A Dieu celle qui t'ay servi
à mon pouvoir tout mon vivant,
à qui je m'estois asservi
plus que nul autre par avant,

à vous comme humble servant,
du tout m'estoit abandonné,
si j'ay mal faict en vous servant,
pour Dieu, qu'il me soit pardonné.

English.png English translation

Farewell she whom I served
as best I could, all my life,
to whom I was devoted
more than to any other before,

to you, as your humble servant,
forgoing all else,
should I have done wrong by serving you,
by God, may I be excused.

Translation by Michael Nick
