Suggested Uses(s)

Recitative and Chorus from Die Geburt Christi, Op. 90. A setting of Es ist ein' Ros. SATB with organ; S or T solo.

A rod shall come forth from the stem of Jesse A branch shall come from out its roots; The spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and truth.

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 floweret 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 men a Savior,
When half spent was the night.
