christmas tree decorationAnother of many slow and somber Christmas carols and hymnsongs, Lo How A Rose E're Blooming tells the story of Jesus' birth.  The true original composer is not for certain, but like may old traditional German hymns, it has been passed down and arranged in many different ways over the millenia.  The version you will download from this page is simplified, written for a solo instrument, and able to be played by most beginning band instrumentalists within the first two years of their instruction.  Parts are included for all common band instruments.

Free Lyrics To Lo How A Rose E're Blooming

Courtesy of Wikipedia

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 flow'ret 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 men a Savior,
When half spent was the night.

O Flower, whose fragrance tender
With sweetness fills the air,
Dispel with glorious splendour
The darkness everywhere;
True man, yet very God,
From Sin and death now save us,
And share our every load.
