The words by Shakespeare in as you like...

Language: English

Wedding is great Juno's crown:
    O blessed bond of board and bed!
'Tis Hymen peoples every town;
    High wedlock then be honoured.
Honour, high honour, and renown,
To Hymen, god of every town!

Le mariage est la couronne de l’auguste...

Language: French (Français) after the English

Le mariage est la couronne de l’auguste Junon.
Lien céleste de la table et du lit,
C’est l’hymen qui peuple les cités,
Que le mariage soit donc honoré.
Honneur, honneur et renom
À l’hymen, dieu des cités !
