Sting - There Is No Rose Of Such Virtue Lyrics

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

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

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

The angels sungen the shepherds to:
Gloria in excelsis deo:

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

Alleluia, res miranda,
Pares forma, gaudeamus,

Sting There Is No Rose Of Such Virtue Comments
  1. Simon Wells

    Mike Lykan, I completely agree utterly. To me in dry blazing smoke-choked Australia, it offers the transport of darkness, cold, cosiness and a shroud of snow

  2. Mike Lykan.

    I really don't care what some people say about Sting, this Albums Brilliant. Its got spirit and was criminally underplayed on the radio last Christmas, listen to it in the dark and let the last moments of winter seduce you...

    Alan Jarrar

    +Mike Lykan Well put :-) Truly beautiful and inspiring album

  3. Jan Schy
