Original text
Content ou non il fault que ie lendure
oultre mon gre et ma seulle Esperance
mais s'une fios il vient a ma puissance
ie mettray fin a ce que trop me dure.

Modern French
Content ou non, il faut que je l'endure
hors de mon gré et ma seule espérance,
mais si jamais il vient en mon pouvoir
je mettrai vient à ce qui m'est trop long.

Whether I like it or not, I'll have to endure it
neither willing nor hoping.
Yet if I ever find the strength,
I shall put an end to this endless misery.
