Favorite Songs: “Dieu! qu’il la fait bon regarder!”

Now, we get to the stuff I listen to the most.

Here are the lyrics, both in the original French and translated:

Dieu! qu’il la fait bon regarder
la gracieuse bonne et belle;
pour les grans biens que sont en elle
chascun est prest de la loüer.
Qui se pourrait d’elle lasser?
Toujours sa beauté renouvelle.
Par de ça, ne de là, la mer
ne scay dame ne damoiselle
qui soit en tous bien parfais telle.
C’est une songe que d’y penser:
Dieu! qu’il la fait bon regarder.

God, what a vision she is;
one imbued with grace, true and beautiful!
For all the virtues that are hers
everyone is quick to praise her.
Who could tire of her?
Her beauty constantly renews itself;
On neither side of the ocean
do I know any girl or woman
who is in all virtues so perfect;
it’s a dream even to think of her;
God, what a vision she is.
