Sting version

Lyrics to There is no rose of such virtue as sung by Sting on the album If On a Winter´s night.

There is no rose of such virtue
As is the rose that bare Jesu;
Alleluia.

For in this rose contained it was
Heaven and earth in little space;
Alleluia..

There is no rose…

By that rose we may well see
That he is God in persons three,
Alleluia.

There is no rose…

The angels sungen the shepherds to:
Gloria in excelsis deo:
Alleluia.

There is no rose…

Traditional version

Traditional lyrics to There is no rose of such virtue.

There is no rose of such virtue
As is the rose that bare Jesu;
Alleluia.

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:
Gaudeamus.

Now leave we all this worldly mirth
And follow we this joyful birth;
Transeamus.

Alleluia, res miranda,
Pares forma, gaudeamus,
Transeamus.
