Original French:

De tous biens plaine est ma maistresse,
chascun lui doit tribut d'onneur;
car assouvye est en valeur
autant que jamais fut deesse.

En la veant j'ay tel leesse
que c'est paradis en mon cueur:
De tous biens plaine est ma maistresse,
chascun lui doit tribut d'onneur.

Je n'ay cure d'autre richesse
si non d'estre son serviteur,
et pource qu'il n'est chois milleur
en mon mot porteray sans cesse:

De tous biens plaine est ma maistresse,
chascun lui doit tribut d'onneur;
car assouvye est en valeur
autant que jamais fut deesse.


English Translation:

My mistress has such great merit
that everyone owes her tribute of honor,
for she is in virtue as perfect
as ever was any goddess.

When I see her, I feel such joy
that there is paradise in my heart,
[for] my mistress has such great merit
that everyone owes her tribute of honor.

I do not care about any other riches
than to be her servant,
and because there is no better choice
I will always carry as my motto:

My mistress has such great merit
that everyone owes her tribute of honor,
for she is in virtue as perfect
as ever was any goddess.
