Ther is no rose of swych virtu
As is the rose that bar Jhesu.

For in this rose conteyned was
Heven and erthe in lytle space.
Res miranda.

Be that rose we may weel see
There be one God in personys thre.
Pares forma.

The aungelys sungyn the sheperdes to
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

Leve we al this werdly merthe
and folwe we this joyful berthe.

German.png German translation

Keine Rose ist tugendhafter
als die Rose, die Jesus gebar: Halleluja.

Denn in dieser Rose fanden sich Himmel
und Erde vereint: Res miranda.

Diese Rose offenbart uns die Dreifaltigkeit
des einen Gottes: Pares forma.

Weltliche Freuden hinter uns lassend
wenden wir uns dieser freudigen Geburt zu: Transeamus.

English.png English translation

There is no rose of such virtue
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
That he is God in persons three,
Pari forma.

The angels sungen the shepherds to:
Gloria in excelsis Deo:

Leave we all this worldly mirth,
And follow we this joyful birth;
