Gregorian chant of english mystic St. Godric of Finchale, also called St.Nicholas (c. 1070-1170) His three surviving songs are the earliest written in what has become the English language.

Text/lyrics in old anglo-saxon language: "St Nicholas, Godes druth timbray us faire scone hus
At thee burthe at thee bare St Nicholas, bring us well thare"

English text: "St. Nicholas, God's beloved, build us a wondrous place to dwell.
At the time of birth, and at the time of death, St. Nicholas bring us safely there."
