Michael Prätorius' Es Ist ein Ros' Entsprungen Sung by Die Jungen Tenöre
Today begins the Christmas Novena:
- HAIL, and blessed be the hour and moment
At which the Son of God was born
Of a most pure Virgin
At a stable at midnight in Bethlehem
In the piercing cold
At that hour vouchsafe, I beseech Thee,
To hear my prayers and grant my desires
(mention request[s] here).
Through Jesus Christ and His most Blessed Mother.
