Keeping Advent, day twenty-two

"There is no rose of such virtue"

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;
Res miranda.

By that rose we may well see
That he is God in persons three,
Pari forma.

The angels sungen the shepherds to:
Gloria in excelsis deo:

Leave we all this worldly mirth,
And follow we this joyful birth;

(Res miranda is translated as "Wonderful thing," Pares forma is translated as "Equal in form," Gloria in excelsis deo is translated as "Glory on high to God," Gaudeamus is translated as "Let us rejoice," Transeamus is translated as "Let us follow.")
