DE INNOCENTIBUS.
Worchepe we this holy day, y* all innocentis for vs pray.
Herode y* was both wylde & wode, ful muche he shadde of cristen blode, To sle y* chylde so meke of mode that mary bare, y* clene may.
Mary wt iftu forthe yfrawzt, As the angell hur towzt To flee the londe till h* wer' sowzt, To epytte she toke hure way.
Herode sloo w* pryde & synne Thowsands of ij zer' & w* ynne, The body of criste he thozft to wynne, & to destrye the cristen fay.
Now iftu y* dyest for vs on the rode, And c*stendest innocents in his blode, By the pyer of thy moder gode,
Bryng v9 to blysse y1 lastith ay.
