Christmas Carol Spotlight: A Great and Mighty Wonder (aka Lo, how a Rose e'er blooming)

The actual name of this Christmas Hymn is "Es ist ein Ros entsprungen" which translates into one English version known as "Lo, How a Rose e'er blooming".  There are at least 3 known English versions of this hymn, all of which are considered Christmas carols. The "Great and Mighty Wonder" version is a translation of a St. Germanus Greek Text, while the "Lo, How a Rose e'er blooming" version comes from a 16th century German text.  I love them both.
