Original text and translations
Middle English text
Thatt was my woo is nowe my most gladness,
Thatt was my payne is nowe my joyus chaunce;
Thatt was my ffere is nowe my sykyrness;
Thatt was my greffe is nowe my allegeaunce.
Thus hath nowe grace enrychyd my plesaunce,
Wherfor I am and shal be tyll I dye
your trew servaunt with thought, hart and body.
