“Es ist ein Ros entsprungen”, is a Christmas carol and Marian Hymn of German origin. It is most commonly translated in English as “Lo, how a rose e'er blooming”, and is also called “A Spotless Rose” and “Behold a Rose of Judah”. The rose in the German text is a symbolic reference to the Virgin Mary. The hymn makes reference to the Old Testament prophecies of Isaiah, which in Christian interpretation foretell the Incarnation of Christ, and to the Tree of Jesse, a traditional symbol of the lineage of Jesus. Because of its prophetic theme, the hymn is popular during the Christian season of Advent.
