Lo, How a Rose
Music & Text: German Carol; harmonized by Michael Praetorius
- 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.
