from Vertue of the Masse


¶ Be ware ye pristis . whan ye yowre masse syng
That love and charite . be nat ferre absent
O gostly peple . afore make goode Rekenyng
That yowre conscience . and ye be of on assent
Or ye receyve . the holy sacrament
Envye and Rankour . that they be set aside
And parfit charite . be ay withe yow present
That grace to godward . may be youre souerayne guyde.

MS. Harl. 2254, fol. 185.
