In the Bleak Midwinter (5:03)

by Jason Silver (played 7 times)


In the bleak midwinter,
Frosty wind made moan
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone;
Snow on snow had fallen,
Snow on snow, on snow
In the bleak midwinter,
So very long ago

Angels and archangels
May have gathered there
Cherubim and seraphim
Rising in the air;
But only virgin Mary,
In her maiden bliss
Worshiped the beloved
with a mother's kiss.

What then can I give him,
Empty 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:
I will give my heart

In the bleak midwinter,
A stable place survives
The Lord God Almighty
Come as Jesus Christ.
Heaven cannot hold him
Nor can earth sustain
Heav'n and earth shall flee away
When He comes to reign.
