Version 12: Lo, How A Rose E'er Blooming
1. Lo, how a rose e'er blooming,
From tender root hath sprung;
To all the world bestowing
What men of old have sung.
There bloomed a lovely flow'r
Though winter's cold was blowing,
And midnight was the hour.
2. Lo, how a rose came springing
Isaiah did proclaim;
While all the heav'ns were singing
The rose by Mary came,
Through God's almighty pow'r
The world salvation bringing,
Though midnight was the hour
