Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming LyricsChristmas Carol

1 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 flower bright,
Amid the cold of winter
When half-gone was the night.

2 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-gone was the night.

3 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

Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming Hymn Story

“Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming” is a German Christmas carol that was translated into English by Theodore Baker.

It is a Christmas carol that discusses the birth of Jesus from the time it was prophesied to his birth. Jesus in this carol is referred to as a rose flower.

A tender rose that sprang out from the lineage of Jesse the father of David. It goes on to describe the fragrance that comes from this “rose flower”.

It is a very beautiful hymn and I like its use of nature to describe the birth of Jesus.

What better way to express the love of God shown through Christ than using the rose flower.

Rose flowers are special in western culture and have spread to all the world that came under the influence of the western world.

To millions a rose flower gift shows love.

Theodore Baker was born in New York in 1851. He studied music in Germany and in his dissertation, he studied the Seneca American Indians music.

He was the first scholar to ever study the music of the American Indians. He was also involved in editing and translating songs for G Schirmer, Inc in New York.
