lyrics

O thow, wha swynkest vor monkynne’s weal
Tel me prithee whaut brac the seal
And howe bi hit thou belaudest theself
Sobeit thi folc still laden thie wyth pelf

Have thou heard about the sky secret gates?
Are still ajar? Or else, for aye they’ll be lost
And earthly creatures somewhither shall betake
In dusk-angels’ hall, belike, in their ache

For why hir contemplacioun o’ futurity rillth
Lento a’ noght amaign, sobeit hir Lege wenth
Th’t terraqueous wyndys ‘nd eiris schal ablaw alee
Uorr the dorc abloom burkth the gladsom glee

Alack! If thou foreshowest thy mankind’s doom
Alack! If thou betakest in gatherin’ gloom
For twinging sha’ long for thy loyalty’s sake
Like fowls in their cage who canna escape

And the Dawn in woe
From Earth shall go
In rathe space deep
For sempiternal sleep

“Farwel!” Spake to me
“Nyltow lyst hwat thou’lst se
Folwe me in mi dei fliht
And abscind fr’m Hym, mi soote deliht”

Thou! Loyal servant of th’ auriferous day
Thou spreadest thy wings to steer thyself astray
Thyself away

Wherefore snowy Fate with frozen and thinly dispersed eyes
Uncoils the clew of nascent lives with wiles crooked
Wicked sleight
