The Welsh cognate has <cist>, which is also the spelling that Borlase used. Gendall has <kist> with a short vowel.

Nance 1938 gives 'kyst' with a short vowel, and gives his source as Borlase, noting the Welsh cognate.
Unfortunately, I don't have a copy of Borlase to check Nance's source. Perhaps someone else on the list could do so.

"Kist surely rhymes with Krist and trist and must be understood as long. The word kyst 'box' doesn't seem to be attested in the texts. There is a word <gyst> but that has initial [dZ] and means 'joist, beam'. KK had difficulty with this word and spelt it both <kist> and <kyst>."
