(In the bleak mid-winter

== CHORUS 1 ==

In the bleak midwinter,
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 midwinter,
long ago.
== CHORUS 2 ==

Our God,
heaven cannot hold him,
nor earth sustain; heaven and earth shall flee away when he comes to reign. In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed the Lord God Almighty,
Jesus Christ.
== CHORUS 3 ==

Angels and archangels may have gathered there,
cherubim and seraphim thronged the air; but his mother only,
in her maiden bliss,
worshiped the beloved with a kiss.
== CHORUS 4 ==

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.
