Vous connaitrez avec obéissance
De mon loyal devoir, n'omettant la science
A quoi j'étudierai pour toujours vous complaire
Sans aimer rien que vous, sous la sujétion
De qui je veux sans nulle fiction
Vivre et mourir.

Music: John Barry,
from a sonnet by Mary, Queen of Scots

Performed by Vanessa Redgrave

This is only part of a sonnet. More can be found in "Bittersweet withing my heart - The love poems of Mary, Queen of Scots", translated and edited by Robin Bell, 1992, Chronicle Books.
