Lyrics

Lo, how a rose e'er blooming
From tender stem hath sprung,
Of Jesse's lineage coming,
As men of old have sung.

It came a flow'ret bright
Amid the cold of winter
When half-spent was the night.

Isaiah 'twas foretold it,
This Rose that I have in mind.
And with Mary we behold it,
The Virgin Mother kind.

To show God's love aright,
She bore to men a Savior
When half-spent was the night.
