Lo, How a Rose
Lo, How a Rose

Music & Text: German Carol; harmonized by Michael Praetorius

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
