There is no tre that growe On earthe, that I do knowe, More worthie praise, I trowe, Then is the vyne: Whos grapes, as ye maye wende, Theire licoure forthe dothe shede Whefeof is made indede, All our good wyne. And wyne ye maye trust me Causethe men for to be Merie, for so ye se His nature is. Then put aside all wrathe, For David shewed us hathe, Vinu letificat Cor hominis. Wyne taken wth excesse, As scripture dothe expres, Causethe great hevines Unto the mynde. But theie that take pleasure, To drinke it wth measure, No doute a great treasure They shall it finde. Then voide you all sadnes, Drinke youre wine with gladnes, To take thought is madnes, And marke well this; And put aside all wrathe, For David showde us hathe, Vinu letificat cor hominis. Howe bringe ye that to pas, Cordis jocunditas, Is nowe and eu was The life of man. Sithe that mirthe hathe no peare, Then let us make good cheare, And be you merie heare While that you can. And drinke well of this wyne, While it is good and fyne, And shewe some outwarde syne Of joye and blisse. Expell from you all wrathe, For David shewed us hathe, Vinu letificat Cor hominis. This thinge full well ye ken, Hevenes dullethe men, But take this medicien then Where eu'r ye come. Refreshe your self therwith, For it was saide long sithe, That vinu acuit, Ingeniu. Then geve not a cherie For sider nor perrye; Wyne makethe man merie, Ye knowe well this. Then put aside all wrathe, For David shewed us hathe, Vinu letificat Cor hominis In hope to have release Of all our hevines, And mirthe for to encrease, Sumdele the more.
