Allain, Richard: Christ’s Love-Song

Christ’s Love-Song (2004)

Love me brought,
And love me wrought,
Man, to be thy fere. [companion]
Love me fed,
And love me led,
And love me lettet [abandoned] here.

Love me slew,
And love me drew,
And love me laid on bier.
Love is peace;
For love I chese, [choose]
Man to buyen dear.

Ne dread thee nought
I have thee sought,
Bothen day and night,
To haven thee;
Well is me,
I have thee won in fight.

Words: from Commonplace Book of John Grimstone, 1372
Music: Richard Allain (b. 1965)
