For love is of such potent might
That of misfortune it makes light.
With full good will they all fell to,
And sought no other sauce thereto
Freedom is a noble thing!
Great happiness does freedom bring.
All solace to a man it gives;
He lives at ease that freely lives.
A! fredome is a noble thing!
Fredome mayse man to haiff liking.
Nor can a man a fire so cover
That smoke or flame shall not discover.
Although for food they hungered sore
He sent them drink, enough and more!
Storys to rede ar delitabill,
Suppos that thai be nocht bot fabill.
