Trid love song

You're the top,
You're the Roman Canon;
You're the top,
You're the Creed in Latin;
In illo tempore
starts every story
you tell;
You're a chanted Ave,
a solemn Salve,
a Sanctus bell.

You're the lilt
Of the Vulgate Psalter;
You're the gilt
On a baroque altar.
I'm the lumpen prose
even ICEL chose
to drop;
But if, care, I'm the bottom,
You're the top!

For some reason You're the Top has been stuck in my head today, hence something to occupy the otherwise empty minutes of procrastination... More (& better) verses, anyone? (The desperate Canon/Latin 'rhyme' kind of works when you sing it, I think... And is that the right vocative of carus?)
