Verse 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. 
Verse 2
Our God, heaven cannot hold Him, nor earth sustain; 
Heaven and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign. 
In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed 
The Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ. 
Verse 3
Enough for Him, Whom cherubim, worship night and day, 
Breastful of milk, and a mangerful of hay; 
Enough for Him, Whom angels fall before, 
The ox and ass and camel which adore. 
Verse 4
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. 
Verse 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.
