Original text and translations

French.png French text

Si le secours que de longtemps j'attends
ne vient de brief et que n'ay ce que pretens,
ma vie ne peult avoir longue durée,
car d'ainsi vivre, je suis trop ennuyé.

Modern French
Si le secours que (depuis) longtemps j’attends,
ne vient de brief (rapidement)
et que je n’ai ce que (je) prétends (d’obtenir),
ma vie ne peut avoir longue durée,
car de vivre ainsi je suis trop dans l’ennui.

English.png English translation

If the rescue I have been abiding
doesn't show up really fast
and I have to forgo that which I need most,
my life will last but one short moment,
since without it, there is no point in it for me.
