Lyrics

Rose, liz, printemps, verdure,
Fleur, baume et tres douce odour,
Bele, passés en douçour,

Et tous les biens de Nature,
Avez dont je vous aour.
Rose, liz, printemps, verdure,
Fleur, baume et tres douce oudour.

Et quant toute creature
Seurmonte vostre valour,
Bien puis dire et par honnour:
Rose, liz, printemps, verdure,
Fleur, baume et tres douce oudour,
Bele, passés en douçour.
