I found two of the four volumes of Fletcher's facsimile edition on Google Books in snippet view. I requested them to do a copyright search and they have now posted a full view of one of the two volumes and are working on the second.
I then found archive.org has all 4 volumes on their site. The most useful to me is the ability to download a .pdf of each of the volumes. The .pdf files are text searchable. It is difficult to find them so I have included links below.

I stood before the Father:
qui ASTO ante Deum L 1:19
I stood before the Son:
A nd all the spangled host keep watch in squadrons bright
S ee how from far upon the eastern road
T he star-led wizards haste with odours sweet,
O run, prevent them with thy humble ode,
19 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.
26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth's pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee,
27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin's name was Mary.
28 The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you."
