REFRAIN: Ther is no rose of swych vertu
As is the rose that bare Jhesu.

Ther is no rose of swych vertu
As is the rose that bare Jhesu.
Alleluya.

For in this rose conteynyd was
Heven and erthe in lyttyl space,
Resmiranda.

Be that rose we may weel see
That he is God in personys thre,
Pariforma.

The aungelys sungyn the sheperdes to:
‘Gloria in excelsis Deo.’
Gaudeamus.
REFRAIN

Leive we al this worldly merthe,
And folwe we this joyful berthe:
Transeamus.
