New Year


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.


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 us a Savior,
When half spent was the night.

~ 15th century German carol, Es ist ein Ros'

 
We wish you blessings and peace for the New Year.
