IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER

In the bleak mid-winter 
Frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, 
Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, 
Snow on snow,
In the bleak mid-winter, long ago.

 

Our God, Heaven cannot hold Him 
Nor earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away
When He comes to reign:
In the bleak mid-winter 
A stable-place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty, 
Jesus Christ.

 

Angels and archangels 
May have gathered there,
Cherubim and seraphim 
Thronged the air,
But only His mother
In her maiden bliss,
Worshipped the Beloved 
With a kiss.

 

What can I give Him, 
Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd
I would bring a lamb,
If I were a wise man
I would do my part,
Yet what I can I give Him, 
Give my heart.
