Faun Liedtext

Faun Adam Lay Ybounden Liedtext

Adam lay ybounden

Bounden in a bond;

Foure thousand witer,

Thought he not too long.

And all was for an apple,

An apple that he tok,

As clerkes finden

Wreten in here book.

Never had the apple,

The apple taken ben,

Ne hadde never our lady,

A ben Hevene Quen.

Blessed be the time

The apple taken was

Therefore we moun singen

Deo gracias
