Inexplicably missing Christmas songs this year, real candles on a Christmas tree, Weihnachtsmarkt and snow, I got inspired to make a christmas song video after accompanying someone to a Christmas Eve service, where this song was song. -
The first known record of the original German verses was in a German hymnal (Speierisches Gesangbuch) in Cologne in 1599. The first two verses were translated into English (Lo, How a Rose Eer Blooming) by Theodore Baker in 1894.
-
German is sung by the Thomanerchor, Leibzig Germany
-
This video also features the Tesla Christmas Tree invented by Rick Crammond.

So here we go, all the way from the 16th century to the 21st :D

Auf deutsch:

Es ist ein Reis (Ros') entsprungen
Aus einer Wurzel zart.
Wie uns die Alten sungen,
Aus Jesse kam die Art
Und hat ein Blümlein bracht,
Mitten im kalten Winter,
Wohl zu der halben Nacht.

2. Das Röslein das ich meine,
Davon Jesaias sagt:
Ist Maria, die Reine,
Die uns das Blümlein bracht.
Aus Gottes ew'gen Rat
Hat sie ein Kind geboren
Und blieb ein' reine Magd.

4. Das Blümelein so kleine,
Das duftet uns so süß,
Mit seinem hellen Scheine
Vertreibt's die Finsternis.
Wahr' Mensch und wahrer Gott,
Hilf uns aus allem Leide,
Rettet von Sünd' und Tod.

English version

Lo, how a rose e'er blooming
From tender stem hath sprung,
Of Jesse's lineage coming,
As men of old have sung.
It came, a flow'ret bright,
Amid the cold of winter,
When half-spent was the night.

2. Isaiah 'twas foretold it,
The rose I have in mind,
With Mary we behold it.
The Virgin mother kind.
To show God's love aright
She bore to them a Savior,
When half-spent was the night.
