George Thalben-Ball: There is no rose

1. There is no rose of such virtue
As is the rose that bare Jesu;

2. For in this rose contained was
Heaven and earth in little space;
Res miranda.

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

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