In the bleak midwinter

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

In the bleak midwinter, long ago, 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

Give my heart, my heart.
