Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming

I've arranged this beautiful carol to have a high harmony and the melody in the alto part. We sing it one time through in unison then repeat the first verse in harmony.

High Harmony:

Lyrics

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.

I want to sing like the bird sings, not worrying who listens or what they think. - Jelaludding Rumi
