Hay, hay, hay, hay,

thynke on Whitson monday!

The bysshop Scrope that was so wyse,

nowe is he dede, and lowe he lyse;

To hevyns blys yhit may he ryse,

Thurghe helpe of Marie, that mylde may.

When he was broght vnto the hyll,

he held hym both mylde and styll;

he toke his deth with full gode wyll,

As I haue herde full trewe men say.

He that shulde his dethe be,

he kneled downe vppon his kne:

"lord, your deth, forgyffe it me,

Full hertly here to yowe I pray."

"Here I wyll the commende,

thou gyff me fyve strokys with thy hende,

And than my wayes thou latt me wende

To hevyns blys that lastys ay."

Note: The burden "Hay, hay, etc." is to be repeated after each stanza.
