Erthe upon Erthe

Erthe out of erthe is wonderly wroghte
Er-the has gaïten on-e erthe… a dignité of noghte

Erthe upon erthe has sett all his thoghte
How tha-at erthe upon erthe… may bé-é heghe broghte

Erthe upon erthe wolde bé a-a kinge
Bot ho-ow erthe to erthe… shall thinkes hé no thinge

When erthe bredes erthe and his rentes hom-e bringe
Then sha-all erthe of erthe… have fu-ull hard partinge

Memento, homo, quad cinis est
Et i-in cenerem revete-e-ris

Erthe upon erthe wins castells and towrres
Then say-se erthe unto erthe… “This es alle ourres”

When erthe upon erthe has biggèd up his baw-res
Then sha-all erthe for erthe suffére sharpe scowrres

Memento, homo, quad cinis est
Et i-in cenerem revete-e-ris

Erth-goes upon erthe as mold upon mold-e
Hé tha-at goes upon erthe… gleterande as golde

Like erthe never more go-o toe erthe shoulder
And yitt shall erthe unto erthe… ga rathere than he wolde

We erthe louves er-the–e, wonder mé thinke
Or we-e erthe for erthe… sholde other swet or swinke

for when Erthe upon erthe is brought within brinke
Then shall erthe of erthe… have a foule stinke

Memento, homo, quad cinis est
Et i-in cenerem revete-e-ris
