Lo, how a rose e're blooming

Lo, how a rose e're blooming
From tender stem hath sprung
Of Jesse's lineage coming
As those of old have sung

It came, a flower bright
Amid the cold of winter
When half-spent was the night

Isaiah twice foretold it
The rose I have in mind
And so then 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

Sufjan Stevens - Lo, How a Rose E're Blooming (mp3)

Hey Meredith, I read your comment on my Dad's site and saw that it was good.

Just out of curiousity, are you connected to anyone in our family? There are eight of us. Some of us live in Tennesse.

Sufjan is awesome!

Hi, Lowen. Thanks for the comment. To answer your question, I'm not exactly sure how we're connected, but I see you link to Josiah whom I believe my brother, Stephen, has mentioned before. They work together (I think). And I think my sister-in-law, Tacy, has a friend named Brae maybe? I also think your dad left a comment on my site months ago via Chattablogs, and I've always enjoyed his quotes since...
