THERE is no rose of such virtue
As is the rose that bear Jesu:
For in this rose containéd was
Heaven and earth in little space:
By that rose we may well see
There be one God in Persons Three:
The angels sang, the shepherds too:
Gloria in Excelsis Deo:
Leave we all this worldly mirth
And follow we this joyful birth:
