Interesting Line

At choir tonight, we pulled out a book we hadn't used yet this year. I was flipping through it while the baritones were working on their part. It has Praetorius arrangements of chorales. The Easter piece is "The Clouds of Night Are Passed Away," and one of the lines is:

The Offspring of the virgin womb
is risen from the virgin tomb.

I just love that!!
I may be a poetry dunce, but THAT one even I appreciate!
