Be sure thou eat not of the tree
Which in the midst doth stand; In eating it thou sure shalt die
And perish from the land.
Let men, &c. Man being blest in this estate,
And blessed sure was he, Having all things at his command
But the forbidden Tree. But when the Serpent soon appear'd
To have beguiled Eve, And told her if she eat thereof
That she should surely live.
Let men, &c. The Serpent soon had Eve beguiled
That she thereof did eat, And likewise gave unto the man
As Scripture doth repeat. And so they both brake God's command,
Committing of that thing, Likewise the heavy wrath of God
Upon them both did bring.
Let men, &c. An Angel then from God was sent
For to declare his will, And to the Virgin Mary came,
God's word for to fulfil.
