lyrics

Ave rex angelorum,
Ave rexque celorum,
Ave princepsque polorum.

Hayl, most myghty in thi werkyng,
Hayl, thou Lord of all thing,
Y offer the gold as to a kyng.

Translation:
Hail, King of Angels,
Hail, King of Heaven,
Hail, Prince of the poles of the earth.

Hail, most mighty in thy deeds,
Hail, thou Lord of every thing,
I offer thee gold, as to a king.
