lyrics

Ther is no rose of swych vertu (swych = such)
as is the rose that bare Jhesu.
Alleluya.

For in this rose conteynyd was
Heven and erthe in lytyl space,
res miranda. (a wonderful thing)

Be that rose we may weel see (Be = by means of)
that he is God in personys thre,
pari forma. (of the same form)

The aungelys sungyn the shepherdes to:
“Gloria in excelsis Deo!” (Glory to God in the highest!)
Gaudeamus. (Let us rejoice)
