This is such an old, old piece; it showed up in print as far back as 1599. Yet despite being around for so long, it was not part of my personal musical repertory until a little later in my life—I heard it for the first time in college. My father being a very Protestant minister, songs about Mary (the “rose” of the title) were not part of our upbringing.
I’ve always felt this song had a timeless, dream-like quality to it. And so I let this melody float among clouds of shifting chords, reminding me of how the light shifts and changes as the sun rises. For me this hymn is also a call to recognition of the sacredness in our lives and that sense of being a part of something much greater than ourselves.
