See amid the winter’s snow

born for us on earth below;
see, the Lamb of God appears
promised from eternal years:

Hail, O ever blessed morn!
Hail, redemption’s happy dawn!
Sing through all Jerusalem:
‘Christ is born in Bethlehem.’

2 Lowly in a manger lies
he who built the starry skies,
he who, throned in height sublime,
reigns above the cherubim:

3 Say, you humble shepherds, say,
what’s your joyful news today?
Tell us why you left your sheep
on the lonely mountain steep?

4 ‘As we watched at dead of night,
round us blazed a glorious light;
angels singing: “Peace on earth!”
told us of a Saviour’s birth.’

5 Sacred infant, all divine,
how your love and mercy shine,
coming from the highest bliss
down to such a world as this!

6 Teach, O teach us, holy child,
lowly, meek and undefiled,
teach us like yourself to be
in your deep humility:
