Original text
En non saichant ce quil luy fault
douleur en son cueur plain
ie languis non en default
et de riens ne me plains
puisque tout habandonner me fault
de tous regretz demourray plain

Modern French
En ne sachant pas ce qu'il lui faut,
douleur entière en son cœur,
je languis non en défaut
et de rien ne me plains
puisqu'il me faut tout abandonner.
De tous regrets je resterai comblé.

English.png English translation

Since he doesn't know what he needs most,
his heart is filled with sadness.
I suffer, since I am not at fault
and never have complained,
yet I have to abandon it all.
Regrets will fill my life henceforth.
