Hymn 50
In the bleak mid-winter

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 will bring a Lamb; If I were a wise man, I would do my part; Yet what can I give Him Give my heart.
