Lyrics

Lo how a rose e'er blooming
From tender stem hath sprung.
Of Jesse's lineage coming
As seers of old have sung.
It came a blossom 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 us a Savior,
When half spent was the night.

O Flow'r, whose fragrance tender 
with sweetness fills the air,
dispel in glorious splendor the darkness everywhere;
t
rue man, yet very God,
from sin and death now save us,
and share our every load.
