1 See amid the winter’s snow,
Born for us on earth below,
See the tender Lamb appears,
Promised from eternal years.
Hail, thou ever-blessed morn!
Hail, Redemption’s happy dawn!
Sing thro’ all Jerusalem,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.
2 Lo, within a manger lies
He, who built the starry skies;
He, who throned in height sublime,
Sits amid the Cherubim. (chorus)
3 Say, ye holy shepherds, say,
What your joyful news today;
Wherefore have ye left your sheep,
On the lonely mountain steep? (chorus)
4 "As we watched at dead of night,
Lo, we saw a wondrous light;
Angels singing ’peace on earth,’
Told us of the Saviour’s birth." (chorus)
5 Sacred Infant, all Divine,
What a tender love was thine;
Thus to come from highest bliss
Down to such a world as this! (chorus)
6 Teach, oh, teach us, Holy Child,
By thy face so meek and mild,
Teach us to resemble thee,
In thy sweet humility! (chorus)
