Es ist ein Ros Entsprungen
Patience brings a Rose.
A rose has sprung up,
from a tender root.
As the old ones sang to us,
Its lineage was from Jesse.
And it has brought forth a floweret
In the middle of the cold winter
And in the dark midnight.
We really enjoyed listening to the King’s Singers version of this 1599 hymn on Youtube – (click here for their version – skip the ad!)
A Friday bouquet at our house…
(delayed a day by the Piñata party yesterday!)
