Adam lay ybounden,<br>
Bounden in a bond;<br>
Four thousand winter<br>
Thought he not too long.
And all was for an apple,<br>
An apple that he took,<br>
As clerkès finden <br>
Written in their book.
Né had the apple taken been<br>
The apple taken been,<br>
Né had never our lady<br>
Abeen heavené queen.
Blessèd be the time<br>
That apple taken was.<br>
Therefore we moun singen<br>
Deo Gracias!
