Lo how a rose e'er blooming by 

“Lo how a rose e’er blooming
From tender stem hath sprung
Of Jesse’s lineage coming
As seers of old have sung
It came a floweret bright
Amid the cold of winter
When half spent ’twas the night
Isaiah ’twas foretold it
This rose I have in mind
With Mary we behold it
The Virgins mother kind
To show His love so bright
She bore for us a Savior
In half spent was that night
O flower whose fragrance tender
With sweetness fills the air
Dispel in Glorious splendor
The darkness everywhere
True man yet very God
From sin and death now save us
And share our human load”

This song I’ll never forget it’s engraved in my heart.. I learned it (in Dutch) when I was on Primairy School and still love to hear it during the Christmas season.

“Es ist ein Ros entsprungen”, most commonly translated to English as “Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming” or “A Spotless Rose”, is a Christmas carol and Marian Hymn of German origin. The text is thought to be penned by an anonymous author, and the piece first appeared in print in the late 16th century. The hymn has been used by both Catholics and Protestants, with the focus of the song being Mary or Jesus, respectively.1 In addition, there have been numerous versions of the hymn, with varying texts and lengths."
