V. A prayer to þe fiue woundes.

Ihesu crist, my lemmon swete,
Þat diȝedest on þe Rode-tre,
Wiþ al my miht i þe be-seche,
ffor þi woundes two and þre,
     4
Þat also faste mot þi loue
In to myn herte ficched be
As was þe spere in to þin herte
Whon þou soffredest deþ for me.
     8
Ihesus þat diȝedest on þe Rode
ffor þe loue of me
And bouhtest me wiþ þi blode,
Þou haue Merci of me:
     12
What me letteþ of eny þing
ffor to loue þe,
Beo hit me lef beo hit me loþ,
Þow do hit a-wey from me, AMEN.
