With owt dyscorde and bothe accorde now let us be,
bothe hart alone to set in one best semyth me.
For when one sole ys in the dole of love is payne.
Then helpe must have hym selfe to save and love to optayne.
Wher for now we that lovers be let us now pray.
Onys love sure ffor to procure with owt denay.
Wher love so sewith ther no hart rewith but condyscend.
Yf contrarye What remedy god yt amend.
Let us have no discord and be of one mind
It seems best to me if we set our single hearts as one
A person alone in love’s power is in pain
And must have help to save himself and obtain love
So now we are lovers, let us pray
That we have one true undeniable love.
Where love grows, let’s have no regrets and go with the flow.
God will provide the remedy for any difficulties!
