Original text and translations

French.png French text

En esperant souvent espoir m'asseure,
tant que lespoir me rend attente seure
de parvenir bientost a mon entente,
d'aultre coste desespoir me presente
faible secours que me desasseure.

Modern French
En espérant souvent, espoir m'assure,
tant que l'espoir me rend l'attente sure
de parvenir bientôt à mon entente.
D'autre côté, désespoir me présente
faible secours qui me trouble fort.

English.png English translation

I find security in hoping
as long as hoping turns to certainty
in quickly meeting my beloved.
Yet on the other hand, when it doesn't
that same hope can cause me great discomfort.
