11Tomorrow shall be my dancing day,Tomorrow shall be my dancing day,
22I would my true love did so chanceI would my true love did so chance
33To see the legend of my plays, to see the legend of my play.
44To call my true love to the dance.
55Sing oh my love, oh my love, my love, my love,<I>Ritornello</I>
66This have I done for my true love. To call my true love to my dance,

88Then was I born of a Virgin pure,<I>Cantus Cancrizans</I>
99Of her I took fleshly substance: Sing, oh, my love, my love, my love,
1010Then was I knit to man's nature, This have I done for my true love.
1111To call my true love to my dance. Then was I born of a Virgin pure,
1212Sing oh my love, oh my love, my love, my love, of her I took fleshly substance;
1313This have I done for my true love. Thus was I knit to man's nature,
1414
1515In a manger laid and wrapp'd I was,<I>Ritornello</I>
1616So very poor this was my chance, To call my true love to my dance,
1717Betwixt an ox and a silly poor ass,
1818To call my true love to the dance.<I>Cantus Cancrizans</I>
1919Sing oh my love, oh my love, my love, my love, Sing, oh, my love, my love, my love,
2020This have I done for my true love. This have I done for my true love.
2121
2222Then afterwards baptised I was,<I>Canon</I>
2323The Holy Ghost on me did glance, In a manger laid and wrapp'd I was,
2424My Father's voice heard from above, So very poor, this was my chance,
2525To call my true love to my dance. Betwixt an ox and a silly poor ass,
2626Sing oh my love, oh my love, my love, my love,
2727This have I done for my true love.<I>Ritornello</I>
2828 To call my true love to my dance.
2929Into the desert I was led,
3030Where I fasted without substance:<I>Canon</I>
3131The Devil bade me make stones my bread, Then afterwards baptiz'd I was,
3232To have me break my true love's dance. The Holy Ghost on me did glance,
3333Sing oh my love, oh my love, my love, my love, My father's voice heard from above,
3434This have I done for my true love.
3535<I>Ritornello</I>
3636The Jews on me they made great suit, To call my true love to my dance.
3737And with me made great variance,
3838Because they loved darkness better than light,<I>Canon</I>
3939To call my true love to the dance. Into the desert I was led,
4040Sing oh, sing oh my love. Where I fasted without substance;
4141 The Devil bade me make stones my bread,
4242For thirty pence Judas me sold,
4343His covetousness for to advance;<I>Ritornello</I>
4444Mark whom I kiss, the same do hold, To have me break my true love's dance.
4545The same is he shall lead the dance.
4646Sing oh my love, my love.<I>Canon</I>
4747 The Jews on me they made great suit,
4848Before Pilate the Jews me brought, And with me made great variance;
4949When Barabbas had deliverance; Because they lov'd darkness rather than light,
5050They scourged me and set me at nought,
5151Judged me to die to lead the dance.<I>Ritornello</I>
5252Sing oh my love, my love, my love, To call my true love to my dance.
5353This have I done for my true love.
5454<I>Canon</I>
5555When on the cross hanged I was; For thirty pence Judas me sold,
5656When a spear to my heart did glance, His covetousness for to advance;
5757There issued forth both water and blood, Mark whom I kiss, the same do hold,
5858To call my true love to the dance.
5959Sing oh my love, oh my love, my love, my love,<I>Ritornello</I>
6060This have I done for my true love. The same is he shall lead the dance.
6161
6262Then down to Hell I took my way,<I>Canon</I>
6363For my true love's deliverance, Before Pilate the Jews me brought,
6464And rose again on the third day, Where Barabbas had deliverance,
6565Up to my true love and the dance, They scourg'd me and set me at nought,
6666Sing oh my love, oh my love, my love, my love,
6767This have I done for my true love.<I>Ritornello</I>
6868 Judg'd me to die to lead the dance.
6969Then up to Heav'n I did ascend,
7070Where now I dwell in sure substance,<I>Canon</I>
7171On the right hand of God Then on the cross hang'd I was,
7272That man may come into the general dance. Where a spear to my heart did glance,
7373Sing oh my love, oh my love, my love, my love, There issu'd forth both water and blood,
7474This have I done for my true love.
75<I>Ritornello</I>
76 To call my true love to my dance.
77
78<I>Canon</I>
79 Then down to Hell I took my way
80 For my true love's deliverance,
81 And rose again on the third day
82
83<I>Ritornello</I>
84 Up to my true love and the dance.
85
86<I>Canon</I>
87 Then up to Heaven I did ascend,
88 Where now I dwell in sure substance,
89 On the right hand of God,
90 that man
91
92<I>Ritornello</I>
93 May come unto the gen'ral dance.
