lyrics

In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan.
Earth stood still as iron, water like a stone.
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow.
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

Our God, Heav’n cannot hold Him, nor earth sustain.
Heav’n and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign.
In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ.

Enough for Him Whom cherubim worship night and day.
A breast full of milk and a manger full of hay.
Enough for Him Whom angels fall down before,
The ox and ass and camel which adore.

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 give a lamb.
If I were a wise man, I would do my part.
Yet, what I can I give Him, give my heart.
Yet, what I can I give Him, give my heart.

It is never too late to try something new! ... more
