Christina Rossetti

 

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.

 

2. Our God, heav'n cannot hold him

Nor earth sustain;

Heav'n and earth shall flee away

When he comes to reign:

In the bleak midwinter

A stableplace sufficed

The Lord God Almighty

Jesus Christ.

 

3. Enough for him, whom cherubim

Worship night and day,

A breastful of milk:,

And a mangerful of hay;

Enough for him, whom angels

Fall down before,

The ox and ass and camel

Which adore.

4 . Angels and archangels

May have gathered there,

Cherubim and seraphim

Thronged the air:

But only his mother

In her maiden bliss

Worshipped the Beloved

With a kiss.

 

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.
