I have set my heart and thoughts
Language: English  after the French (Français) 
I have set my heart and thoughts,
Know this full certainly,
On serving you, honoured lady,
Beautiful and good, of clear and noble appearance,
And I swear to you on my oath:
So long as my body shall live,
In every place I will say truly
  That you are the equal of the best.
