Deo Gracias!

Adam lay i-bowndyn,
bowndyn in a bond,
Fowre thows and wynter
thowt he not to long.
And al was for an appil,
an appil that he tok.
As clerkes fyndyn wretyn
in here book.
Ne hadde the appil take ben,
the appil taken ben,
Ne hadde never our lady
a ben hevene quen.
Blyssid be the tyme
that appil take was!
Therefore we mown syngyn
Deo gracias!
