What Is This Lovely Fragrance?
Text: Traditional French Carol: trans. Adrienne Tindall
Music: QUELLE EST CETTE ODEUR AGRÉABLE? arr. Austin C. Lovelace

What is this lovely fragrance, shepherds, which gently enfolds our hearts this night?
Sweeter than all the flowers of springtime, as they exhale unique delight!
What is this lovely fragrance, shepherds, which gently enfolds our hearts this night?

What bursting light has come through darkness to dazzle our eyes with living hues?
Even the daystar’s radiant orbit has not a radiance so profuse!
What bursting light has come through darkness to dazzle our eyes with living hues?

Savior of God, your birth in Bethlehem’s manger exalts this holy night.
Nothing shall hinder our adoring, witnessing our Redeemer’s light.
Savior of God, your birth in Bethlehem’s manger exalts this holy night.

God of all power, may You be glorified! Hearts overflow with thanks and praise.
Let endless peace embrace all people. Let grace abound in all life’s ways.
God of all power, may You be glorified! Hearts overflow with thanks and praise.

From the Song Cycle, “A Christmas Blessing”
