SEE, AMID THE WINTER'S SNOW

1. SEE, amid the winter's snow,
Born for us on earth below,
See, the Lamb of God appears,
Promised from eternal years.

      Hail, thou ever-blessSd mornl
      Hail, redemption's happy dawn!
      Sing through 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.

3. Say, ye holy shepherds, say,
What your Joyful news to-day;
Wherefore have ye left your sheep
On the lonely mountain steep?

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,


5. Sacred Infant, all divine,
What a tender love was Thine,
Thus to come from highest bliss
Down to such a world as this !

6. Teach, O teach UB, holy Child,
By Thy face so meek and mild,
Teach us to resemble Thee
In Thy sweet humility.
