Adam lay abounden, bounden in a bond, four thousand winters through he thought not too long, Deo gratias! And all was for an appil , an appil that he tok, as clerkes finden written in their book. Deo Gratias! Ne had the appil taken ben, ne hadde our Lady a ben hevene queen. Blessed be the time that appil taken was, therefore we mourn singen Deo Gratias!
O radix Jesse, qui stas in signum populorum, super quem continebunt reges os suum, quem gentes deprecabuntur; veni ad liberandum nos, noli tardare.
O root of jesse that stands as an ensign for the people, at whom kings shall shut their mouths and whom the Gentiles shall seek. Come and deliver us and do not delay.
