INTRO/INTERLUDES:   C      F       G

 


C                F               C                
Lo, how a Rose e’er blooming,

F        C          G                C  

From tender stem hath sprung.
C                F           C           
Of Jesse’s lineage coming,

F   C          G            C  

As men of old have sung.

C  C/B                  G
It came, a flower bright, 
C               F           C         
Amid the cold of winter,

F       C                G             C  

When half gone was the night.
 

C           F             C         
Isaiah ’twas foretold it

F      C       G         C  

The Rose I have in mind.
C                F        C           
With Mary we behold it,

F    C        G            C  

The virgin mother kind.

C  C/B                      G

To show God’s love aright, 
C                   F         C           
She bore to men a Savior,

F         C              G             C  

When half gone was the night.
 

C                                 F                C            
This Flower, whose fragrance tender,

F       C               G           C

With sweetness fills the air.
C                    F             C               
Dispels with glorious splendor,

F      C              G        C  

The darkness everywhere.

C     C/B                 G
True man, yet very God, 
C                     F                C               
From sin and death He saves us,

F       C          G        C  

And lightens every load.
