Description A wonderful, flowing, and quietly passionate piece. Moderately easy though with divisi in all parts.
More lovely than the rose the fragrance that this night
of nights is poured on earth; No noontide sun so bright
e'er shone as one clear star that led the Wise Men's way,
before God's wisdom hid in babyhood to pray.
More lovely than the rose of Sharon lay,
bud of a virgin flow'r lay cradled in the hay;
More lovely than the rose of Sharon lay
bud of a virgin flow'r he lay in the oxen's hay;
The rose of Sharon lay.
