1  Adam lay ybounden,
Bounden in a bond:
Four thousand winter
Thought he not too long.


2  And all was for an apple,
An apple that he took,
As clerkès finden
Written in their book.


3  Nè had the apple taken been,
The apple taken been,
Ne had never our lady
Abeen heavenè queen.


4  Blessèd be the time
That apple taken was,
Therefore we moun singen,
Deo gracias!
