See amidst the winter's snow,
Born for us on earth below;
See the tender lamb apears,
Promis'd from eternal years.

Hail, thou ever blessed morn;
Hail, redemption's happy dawn;
Sing through all Jerusalem,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.

Lo, within a manger lies
He who built the starry skies;
He who throned in height sublime,
Sits amid the cherubim.


Say, ye holy shepherds, say
What your joyful news today;
Wherefore have you left your sheep,
On the lonely mountain steep?


As we watch'd at dead of night,
lo,we saw a wondrous light;
angels singing, peace on earth
told us of the Saviour's birth.


Sacred infant, all divine,
what a tender love was thine,
thus to come from highest bliss
down to such a world as this.


Teach, O teach us, Holy Child,
by thy face so meek and mild,
Teach us to resemble thee,
in thy sweet humility:
