Jesu Criste Milde Moder is a mediaeval vocal piece from England. It is one of the first examples of vocal music written with harmonies. I came across it while finding repertoire for ROCS in 2000.


Jesu Cristes milde moder
Stud, biheld hire sone o rode
That he was ipined on.
The sone heng, the moder stud
And biheld hire childes blud,
Wu it of hise wundes ran.

Neue blisse he us broute
That mankin so dere boute
And for us gaf is dere lif.
Glade and blithe thu us make,
For thi suete sones sake,
Edi maiden, blisful wif.

Quen of evene, for thi blisse
Lithe al hure soriness
And went hur yvel al in to gud.
Bring hus, moder, to thi sone,
Mak hus evre with im wone
That hus boute wit his blud.
