Enjoy two hymns in one book!

Travel through the pages of the traditional Christmas carol, Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming, and see prophecies fulfilled in Christ’s birth, death, and resurrection. Flip the book over and sing What Is the World to Me. Marvel that Christ, though He was rich, became poor so that we might have heavenly riches, worth more than all earthly treasures.

From illustrations inspired by Van Gogh’s Starry Night to a storyline reminiscent of Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress, the soft artwork accompanying both hymns is sure to invite all readers.

  1. Lo, how a rose e’er blooming
    From tender stem hath sprung!
    Of Jesse’s lineage coming
    As prophets long 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 us a Savior,
    When half-spent was the night.
  3. This flow’r, whose fragrance tender
    With sweetness fills the air,
    Dispels with glorious splendor
    The darkness ev’rywhere.
    True man, yet very God,
    From sin and death he saves us
    And lightens ev’ry load.
  4. O Savior, child of Mary,
    Who felt our human woe;
    O Savior, King of glory,
    Who dost our weakness know:
    Bring us at length we pray
    To the bright courts of heaven,
    And to the endless day.

  1. What is the world to me
    With all its vaunted pleasure
    When You, and You alone,
    Lord Jesus, are my Treasure!
    You only, dearest Lord,
    My soul’s delight shalt be;
    You are my peace, my rest.
    What is the world to me!
  2. The world seeks to be praised
    And honored by the mighty
    Yet never once reflects
    That they are frail and flighty.
    But what I truly prize
    Above all things is He,
    My Jesus, He alone.
    What is the world to me!
  3. The world seeks after wealth
    And all that mammon offers,
    Yet never is content
    Though gold should fill it coffers.
    I have a higher good,
    Content with it I’ll be:
    My Jesus is my wealth.
    What is the world to me!
  4. What is the world to me!
    My Jesus is my treasure,
    My life, my health, my wealth,
    My friend, my love, my pleasure,
    My joy, my crown, my all,
    My bliss eternally.
    Once more, then, I declare:
    What is the world to me!
