Poem 18: Audi benigne conditor; Fol. 210v

Lustne, mylde Wrouhte, oure bones wyth wœpinge
In þys holy uastinge, vourti dawes lestynge.
Holy secher of monnes þouht, þou wost oure brotelnesse;
To hœ´m þat bœ´th yturnd to þe graunte vorȝyfnesse.
Mœche, vorsoht, wœ habbeht agult; vorȝyf hœm þat knoulecheth.
To worshype of þyn oune nome, to sunvol mon bœ leche.
Graunte ous pyne wyþouteuorth þe body wyth vastinge,
Þat oure gost wyþynneuorth veste vrom sunnynge.
Graunte ous, Holy Trinite, þat in Godhede art ón,
Þat þe ȝyft of leyntes vast notfol boe to mon. AmeN.
