Available translation(s): ENG
Present, present de couleur de Colombe,
Va où mon Cueur s'est le plus adonné!
Va doulcement, & doulcement y tombe!
Mais au parler ne te monstre estonné!

Dy que tu es pour Foy bien ordonné!
Dy oultreplus (car je te l'abandonne)
Que le Seigneur à qui tu es donné
N'a foy semblable à celle qui te donne.
