Lyrics
There is no rose of such virtue
As is the rose that bare Jesu;
Alleluia.

For in this rose contained was
Heaven and earth in little space;
Res miranda. (A wonderful thing)

By that rose we may well see
That he is God in persons three,
Pares forma. (Of the same form)

The angels sungen the shepherds to:
Gloria in excelsis deo: (Glory to God on high)
Gaudeamus. (Let us rejoice)

 Leave we all this worldly mirth,
And follow we this joyful birth;
Transeamus. (Let us go)
