In Preparation for the Lord’s Day: Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming


Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming

Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse . . . Isaiah 11:1

image

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-gone 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-gone was the night.

This Flower, whose fragrance tender with sweetness fills the air,
Dispels with glorious splendor the darkness everywhere.
True Man, yet very God, from sin and death He saves us
And lightens every load.
