Wednesday with Words: With Glorious Splendor


Merry Christmas!

We sang 'Lo, How A Rose E'er Blooming' at our Sunday evening service. I like it, it's hard to sing, but so lovely (and I got the alto line right for the first time!)

I love the final stanza and thought I'd share it for our Christmas post.  I totally understand if you don't have words, time, energy, inclination, but I wanted to make it available if any of you do.

I hope you and yours revel in the glorious splendor in the incarnation of our Savior, the Word becoming Flesh.
This Flower, whose fragrance tender with sweetness fills the air
Dispels with glorious splendor the darkness everywhere;
True man, yet very God, from sin and death He saves us,
And lightens every load.

    1. Thanks Amy. The music is haunting and mysterious, not lilting and excited like so many of today's carols. I like that.

      I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
