Text: There is No Rose

Fourteenth century carol

There is no rose of such virtue, as is the rose that bare Jesu. There is no
rose of such virtue, as is the rose that bare Jesu. Alleluia.

There is no rose of such virtue, as is the rose that bare Jesu. For in this
rose contained was heaven and earth in little space. Resmiranda. (Wondrous thing)

There is no rose of such virtue, as is the rose that bare Jesu. For by that
rose we may well see that he is God in persons three. Pariforma. (One in form)

There is no rose of such virtue, as is the rose that bare Jesu. The angels
sungen the shepherds to: Gloria in excelsis Deo. (Glory to God in the highest)
Gaudeamus. (Let us rejoice)

There is no rose of such virtue, as is the rose that bare Jesu. Leave all this
worldly mirth and follow we this joyful birth. Transeamus. (Let us cross over)

There is no rose of such virtue, as is the rose that bare Jesu.
