Original text and translations
Jesu, Lord, that madest me,
And with Thy blessed blood has bought,
Forgive that I have grieved Thee
With word, with will, and eke with thought.
Jesu, in whom is all my trust,
That died upon the roodë tree,
Withdraw my heart from fleshly lust
And from all worldly vanity.
Jesu, for Thy woundës smart
On feet and on Thy handës two,
Make me meek and low of heart,
And Thee to love as I should do.
Jesu, keep them that be good,
Amend them that have grieved Thee,
And send them fruits of earthly food
As each man need’th in his degree.
