In the Bleak Mid Winter
In the bleak midwinter frosty winds 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, long ago
2. 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. 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.
