Modernized French text

Amour, venge toy, venge moy.
Amour, venge-toi, venge-moi.
Punis ce fier rival sers toy de son absence
Punis ce fier rival sers-toi de son absence
Pour l’effacer du cœur qui m’a manqué de foy ;
Pour l’effacer du cœur qui m’a manqué de foi
Et rends ce cœur a ma constance.
Et rends ce cœur à ma constance.
