In the Bleak Midwinter

  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.
  2. Our God, heavín cannot hold Him,
    Nor earth sustain;
    Heavín and earth shall flee away
    When He comes to reign.
    In the bleak midwinter
    A stable place sufficed
    The Lord God Almighty,
    Jesus Christ.
  3. Enough for Him, whom cherubim
    Worship night and day,
    A breastful of milk and a
    Mangerful of hay;
    Enough for Him, whom angels
    Fall down before,
    The ox and ass and camel
    Which adore.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
