Edi beo thu hevene quene (13th century)
Edi beo thu hevene quene,
Folkes froure and engles blis:
Moder unwemmed and maiden clene,
Swich in world non other nis:
On the hit is wel eth sene
Of alle wimmen thu havest thet pris.
Mi swete levedi, her mi bene
And reu of me if thi wille is.
Blessed be thou, queen of heaven,
comfort of men and joy of angels,
spotless mother and pure maiden,
there is none other such in the world.
It is readily seen
that of all women thou bearest the prize.
My sweet lady, hear my prayer
and have pity on me if it is thy will.
