Stanza 110


No Analogue


inque hac domo, in qua tu me dominam fecisti, Deum testor, animo semper ancilla permansi.

and in this house, in which you have made me mistress, I call God to witness that I have remained in spirit as a handmaid.


And in this hous ther ye me lady maade -
The heighe God take I for my witnesse,
And also wysly he my soule glaade -
I nevere heeld me lady ne maistresse,
But humble servant to youre worthynesse,
And evere shal whil that my lyf may dure
Aboven every worldly creature.
