Es ist ein Ros entsprungen

It’s Christmas Eve! πŸ™‚

Although the pandemic has prevented me from being able to celebrate the holiday as I normally would with family, I am grateful for video chat because I was still able to see family today! ❀

As a Christmas gift, I am sharing TWO songs with you this week! ❀

The first is in English AND GERMAN! πŸ˜€ I am a HUGE language nerd, and I was so excited to sing a song in German! πŸ˜€

Here is “Lo, how a Rose e’er Blooming/Es ist ein Ros entsprungen.”

Lyrics:

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.

 

Es ist ein Ros entsprungen,

aus einer Wurzel zart,

wie uns die Alten sungen,

von Jesse kam die Art

Und hat ein BlΓΌmlein bracht

mitten im kalten Winter,

wohl zu der halben Nacht.

As for my second song, here is my cover of “Good King Wenceslas.”

 

 

Lyrics:

Good King Wenceslas looked out

On the Feast of Stephen

When the snow lay round about

Deep and crisp and even

Brightly shone the moon that night

Though the frost was cruel

When a poor man came in sight

Gathering winter fuel
Hither, page, and stand by me,

If thou knowst it, telling

Yonder peasant, who is he?

Where and what his dwelling?

Sire, he lives a good league hence,

Underneath the mountain

Right against the forest fence

By Saint Agnes fountain.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas! ❀
