This ae nighte, this ae nighte,
    —­Every nighte and alle,
Fire and sleet and candle-lighte,
    And Christe receive thy saule.

When thou from hence away art passed,
    —­Every nighte and alle,
To Whinny-muir thou com’st at last;
    And Christe receive thy saule.

If ever thou gavest hosen and shoon,
    —­Every nighte and alle,
Sit thee down and put them on;
    And Christe receive thy saule.

If hosen and shoon thou ne’er gav’st nane,
    —­Every nighte and alle,
The whins sall prick thee to the bare bane;
    And Christe receive thy saule.

From Whinny-muir when thou mayst pass,
    —­Every nighte and alle,
To Brig o’ Dread thou com’st at last;
    And Christe receive thy saule.

From Brig o’ Dread when thou may’st pass,
    —­Every nighte and alle,
To Purgatory Fire thou com’st at last;
    And Christe receive thy saule.

If ever thou gavest meat or drink,
    —­Every nighte and alle,
The fire sall never make thee shrink;
    And Christe receive thy saule.

If meat or drink thou never gav’st nane,
    —­Every nighte and alle,
The fire will burn thee to the bare bane;
    And Christe receive thy saule.

This ae nighte, this ae nighte,
    —­Every nighte and alle,
Fire and sleet and candle-lighte,
    And Christe receive thy saule.
