Poem 12: Tu rex glorie Christe; Fol. 208v

Þou kyng of wœle and blisse, Louerd Iesu Crist,
Þou Vaderes Sone of heuene, þat neuer ende bist:
Þou, uor to sauue monkunne þat þou haddest whrout,
A mœke maydes wombe þou ne shonedest nouht.
Þou þat ouercóme þe bitter déthes stunchg,
Þou openedest hœuene ryche to ryth byleues þrunchg.
Þou sist in Godes ryth hond in þy Uaderes blisse;
Þou shalt comen to demen ous, wœ´ léueth al-to wysse.
Þé, þœnne, wœ byddeth help ous, wham þou hauest ywrouth,
Whóm wyþ þy dœrewourþe blod on rode hauest ybouth.
Aliter sic:
Þe, þœnne, wœ bysecheth: help ous, þyn oune hyne,
Whom wyth þy derewourþe blod hast bouth vrom helle pyne. Amen.
