Lyrics
Translation

Now welcom somer, with thy sonne softe,
Now welcome summer, with your balmy sun

That hast this wintres weders over-shaker,
Which has shaken off the winter storms

And driven awey the longe nightes blake!
And driven away the long dark nights!


Seynt Valentyn, that art ful hy on lofte,
Saint Valentine, who sits on high,

Thus singen smale foules for thy sake.
Is the one who the little birds sing for!

.

Now welcom somer, with thy sonne softe,
Now welcome summer, with your balmy sun

That hast this wintres weders over-shaker,
Which has shaken off the winter storms

(And driven awey the longe nightes blake!)
(And driven away the long dark nights!)


Wel han they cause for to gladen ofte,
They have a good reason to rejoice

Sith ech of hem recovered hath his make:
Since each is reunited with its mate -

Ful blisful (may) they singen whan they wake.
They will sing blissfully together when they awake.
