An Anonymous Medieval English Quotation

How mow they thanne shryue that synne,
That seyn they haue no gylt therinne?
We Englys men theron shulde thinke.


How can anyone repent of any sin,
If he believes he is not guilty of it?
We Englishmen should really think about this matter.

(Translation by T.J.White)
