Excerpt

fully
And hool my loue in al honeste
Wit[=h]oute chaunge al be hit secretly
I haue no space wit[=h] hym for to be
O lady venus consider now and see
Vnto theffecte and compleynt of my by[=ll]
Sit[=h] lyf and det[=h] I put a[=ll] in thy wy[=ll]

And tho me thought the goddes did enclyne
Mekely her hede and softly gan expresse
That in short tyme her torment shold fyne
And how of hym for whom al her distresse
Contynned had and al her heuynesse
She shold haue Ioye and of her purgatorye
Be holpen sone and so lyue fort[=h] in glorye

And said doughter for thy sad trouthe
Thy fait[=h]ful menyng and Innocence
That planted be wit[=h] outen ony slouthe
In your persone deuoyed of al offence
So han they atteyned to our audience
That wit[=h] our grace ye shal be wel releuyd
I you behete of al that hat[=h] you greuyd

And for that ye be euer of one entent
Wit[=h]oute chaunge or mutabilyte
And in your paynes ben so pacient
