The rose

    Newer Older

    Lo, how a Rose e'er blooming
    from tender stem hath sprung!
    Of Jesse's lineage coming,
    as those of old have sung.
    It came, a floweret bright,
    amid the cold of winter,
    when half spent was the night.

      Norwegian version, my favorite Christmas song:

      Det hev ei rosa sprunge
      ut av ei rot so grann.
      Som fedrane hev sunge:
      Av Jesse rot ho rann,
      og var ein blome blid
      midt i den kalde vinter
      ved myrke midnattstid

      Original German version, year 1587:

      Es ist ein Ros entsprungen
      aus einer Wurzel zart,
      wie uns die Alten sungen,
      von Jesse kam die Art
      und hat ein Blümlein bracht
      mitten im kalten Winter,
      wohl zu der halben Nacht.
