Lyrics

THIS ae nighte, this ae nighte, —Refrain: Every nighte and alle, Fire and fleet and candle-lighte, —Refrain: And Christe receive thy saule. When thou from hence away art past To Whinny-muir thou com'st at last If ever thou gavest hosen and shoon, Sit thee down and put them on; If hosen and shoon thou ne'er gav'st nane The whinnes sall prick thee to the bare bane. From Whinny-muir when thou may'st pass, To Brig o' Dread thou com'st at last; From Brig o' Dread when thou may'st pass, To Purgatory fire thou com'st at last; If ever thou gavest meat or drink, The fire sall never make thee shrink; If meat or drink thou ne'er gav'st nane, The fire will burn thee to the bare bane; This ae nighte, this ae nighte, —Every nighte and alle, Fire and fleet and candle-lighte, —And Christe receive thy saule. Note: ae: one; hosen: stockings; shoon: shoes; whinnes: thorns; bane: bone; brig: bridge
