Vox Ultima Crucis

Tarye no longer; toward thyn heritage

Haste on thy way, and be of right good chere.

Go ech day onward on thy pilgrimage;

Thynk how short time thou shalt abyde here.

Thy place is bigg'd above the sterres clere,

None erthly paleys wrought in so statly wyse.

Come on, my frend, my brother most entere!

For the I offred my blood in sacryfice.

— John Lydgate
