This voyce both ~harp & al~o (damage)

Shall be herd from heuen to (damage)

All mydle erthe it ~hall fulfyll

Uenite ad iudicium.

    A voyce. &c.

Uenite is a bly~~ed ~ong

For them that for ioye dooth longe

And ~hall for~ake paynes ~trong

Uenite ad iudicium

A voyce. &c.

Glad in hert may they be

Whan Chry~t ~ayeth Uenite

Ye bly~~ed chyldren come to me

Into vitam eternam

A voyce. &c.

Whan I hongred ne gaue me meat

Ye clothed me agayn~t the weat

In trouble ye dyde me not forgeat

Uenite ad iudicium

A voyce. &c.

Ye ~ocoured me at your doore

And for my ~ake gaue to the poore

Whan for nede that I dyde crye

Confortle~~e ye lete me dye

Ye ~hall abye ryght dere therfore

In hell with deuyls for euermore

Uenite ad iudicium

A voyce. &c.
