The Flow’r of Jesse comes together with very little rehearsal and beautifully expresses Isaiah’s hopeful message that a Messiah will sprout from the seemingly dead family tree of Jesse…  “And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots.”

Perfect for Advent or a Lessons and Carols service.

(This title is from the 21-minute work When Christ Was Born)

There is a Flower sprung of a tree,
The root thereof is called Jesse;

A flower of price,
There is none such in Paradise!

This Flower is fair and fresh of hue:
It fadeth never, but ever is new;
The blissful branch this Flower on grew
Was Mary mild that bare Jesu.

A flower of grace,
Against all sorrow it is solace!

The seed hereof was God’s command,
That God Himself sowed with His hand
In Bethlehem, that holy land;
Amidst her harbour there he her found.

This blissful Flower
Sprang never but in Mary’s bower.

And when that Flower began to spread,
And His blossom forth He led,
Both rich and poor in every stead,
They marveled how this Flower might spread,

A flower of price,
There is none such in Paradise!
