Advent, 1

There is no rose of such vertu
As is the rose that bare Jesu.

For in this rose contained was
Heaven and earth in little space
Res miranda.

By that rose we may well see
There be one God in persons three,
Pares forma.

The angels sungen the shepherds to
Gloria in excelsis deo.

Leave we all this worldly mirth
And follow we this joyful birth.
