By prophesye one Isay,
One Isay at lest dyd tell, A chylde sholde come, woderous newys, That shold be borne trewe kyng of Jewys
In Israeli. This Herode knew one borne shold be,
One borne sholde be of trewe lenage, That sholde be ryght herytour ; For he but by the Emperour
Was made by vsurpage.
Wherfore of throught this kyng Herode, This kynge Herode in grete fere fell,
For all the days most in his myrth,
Euer he fered Chrystes byrth In Israeli.
The tyme came it pleased God, It pleased God so to come to pas,
For mannes soule in dede
His blyssed sone was borne wyth spede, As his wyll was.
Tydynges came to kynge Herode,
To kynge Herode, and dyd hym tell, That one borne forsoth is he, Whiche lorde and kynge of all shall be In Israeli.
