Original text and translations

English.png English text

When blossoms flowered 'mid the snows Upon a winter night
Was born the Child the Christmas Rose, The King of Love and Light
The angels sang, the shepherds sang, The grateful earth rejoiced
And at His blessed birth the stars Their exultation voiced.

O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

Again the heart with rapture glows To greet the holy night
That gave the world its Christmas Rose, Its king of Love and Light
Let ev'ry voice acclaim His name, The grateful chorus swell
From paradise to earth He came That we with Him might dwell

O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.
