Text heard on Sample:
Sweet Jesus is cum to us
This good time of Christmas;
Wherefor with praise sing we always,
'Welcum our Messias'.
The God Almight and King of light,
Whose power is over all,
Give us, of grace, for to purchase
His realme celestial.
Where his angels and archangels
Do sing incessantly,
His principates and potestates
Maketh gret harmony.
The cherubins and seraphins,
With ther tunikes mery,
The trones all most musical
Sing the heavenly Kery.
The vertues clere ther tunes bere,
Ther quere for to repaire;
Whose song to hold was manifold
Of dominacions fair.
With one accord serve we that Lord
With laudes and oraison,
The which hath sent, by good assent,
To us his only son.
- Anonymous 15th century
