The second Advent themed recording from The Orchardist, courtesy of the Rabbit Room.
Lo, How A Rose E’er Blooming.

The Lyrics.
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 flow’ret 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 men a savior
When half-spent 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
