Lyrics
Lo, how a rose e'er blooming
From tender stem hath sprung
Of Jesse's lineage coming,
As men of old hath sung.
It came a flow'ret, bright,
Amid the cold of winter,
When half-spent was the night.

Isaiah 'twas foretold it,
The rose I have in mind,
With Mary we behold it,
The Virgin mother kind.
To show God's love aright
She bore to them a Savior
When half-spent was the night.

This flow'r, whose fragrance, tender,
With sweetness fills the air,
Dispels with glorious splendor
The darkness ev'rywhere.
True Man, yet very God,
From sin and death He saves us
And lightens ev'ry load.
