  1. 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.

  2. 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.

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

  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 give Him -
    Give my heart.
