WNL-XLIV: "mit seinem hellen Scheine vertreibt's die Finsternis"

Es ist ein' Ros' entsprungen, aus einer Wurzel zart.
Wie uns die Alten sungen, von Jesse war die Art
Und hat ein Blüm'lein 'bracht;
mitten im kalten Winter, wohl zu der halben Nacht

Das Röslein, das ich meine, davon Jesaia sagt:
Maria ist's, die Reine, die uns das Blüm'lein bracht'
Aus Gottes ew'gem Rat,
Hat sie ein Kindlein g'boren, Bleibend ein reine Magd

Das Blümelein, so kleine, das duftet uns so süß;
mit seinem hellen Scheine vertreibt's die Finsternis
Wahr'r Mensch und wahrer Gott!
Hilft uns aus allem Leide, rettet von Sünd' und Tod

-German Carol
