Faun – Adam Lay Ybounden

Adam Lay Ybounden

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
Adam Had Fallen

Adam had fallen
Fallen deep into guilt;
Four thousand winters,
He regarded as not too long.

And all was for an apple,
An apple that he took,
That scholars find
Written in a book.

Had he never taken the apple,
The apple not taken,
Never would Our Lady
Have been a Heavenly Queen.

Blessed be the time,
The apple was taken
So that we may sing:
Thanks to the Lord
