From an ancient missal at Neuhausen, Germany
- Author Unknown
Unfetter'd by the world - at rest,
Peaceful on the mother's breast,
By his artless trust betrayed,
In the trap her bosom made,
Such is the Unicorn's arrest!
Sinu matris conditur,
Qui mundo non clauditur,
A Christmas Carol
- Heinrich of Laufenburg
The unicorn, it's just been caught
In maiden's lap, by cunning thought,
And - 't was Jesus Christ!
O Mary, that's thy due,
And worth thou well hast earn'd,
The stag with thee has sheltered
Thou tender, pretty doe.
