Lyrics: Anon

O doux regard, O parler gracieux,
O ris humain, O fac' un peu brunette.
O doux aimer, qui provient de ses yeux
Qui sont assis en face très nette.
O grand douceur, O céleste planète
Sous qui le ciel a voulu ma naissance!
Ma liberté je mets en ta puissance,
Puisque le ciel ton serf m'a destiné
Ayant espoir, qu'après longue souffrance,
Dedans ton coeur j'aurai lieu assigné.

O sweet gaze, O graceful speech,
O humane smile, O lightly browned face,
O sweet love, emanating from those eyes
Set in so very clear a complexion,
O great sweetness. O celestial orb,
Under which heaven willed my birth!
I put my liberty under your sway,
Since heaven has destined me to be your serf;
Here's hoping that, after long suffering,
I will be allotted a place in your heart.
