Pere eternal qui nous ordonnes
navoir souci du lendemain
des biens que pour ce iours nous donnes
te mercions de cueur humain
plaise toy du celeste pain
paistre noz ames a ta gloire

Modern French
Père éternel qui nous ordonnez
n'avoir souci du lendemain.
De biens que pour ce jour vous nous donnez,
nous te remercions de cœur humain.
Plaise-Toi du pain céleste
et nourrissez nos âmes à ta gloire.

Eternal Father who hath instructed us
not to worry about what the morrow brings.
For all the goods that you hath granted us today,
we thank thee wholeheartedly.
Take pleasure in the heavenly bread
and feed our souls to grow in thy glory.
