Lo, how a rose e'er blooming
From tender stem hath sprung
Of Jesse's lineage coming
By ancient sibyls sung

A rose doth bear a flower
All in the cold midwinter
And at the midnight hour

And he waits for who to find
The heart she left behind
He prays she'll find her way
To be his bride someday

Ivy of all the trees in the wood, holly wants the rose
Holly and the ivy when they are both full grown
Of all the trees in the wood holly bears the crown
Holly and the ivy, the running of the deer
For his rose to bloom holly waits every year

He waits for who to find
The heart she left behind
He prays she'll find her way
To be his bride someday

Ivy of all the trees in the wood, holly wants the rose
Holly and the ivy when they are both full grown
Of all the trees in the wood holly bears the crown
The holly and the ivy, the running of the deer
For his rose to bloom holly waits every year
For his rose to bloom holly waits every year, waits every year

Lo, how a rose e'er blooming
From tender stem hath sprung
The frozen air perfuming that tiny bloom doth swell
Its rays the night illuming, the darkness quite dispel

Oh, flower beyond compare
Bloom in our heart's midwinter
Restore the springtime here
