Adam Lay Ibounden

Adam lay ibounden,
 Bounden in a bond.
 Four thousand winter
 Thoght he not too long.
 And all was for an appil,
 And appil that he tok,
 As clerkes finden
 Wreten in here book.
 Ne hadde the appil take ben,
 The appil taken ben,
 Ne hadde never our lady
 A ben hevene quene.

 Blessed be the time
 That appil take was,
 Therefore we moun singen
 Deo gracias.
