Lyrics Text by Christina Rossetti:

IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER,
FROSTY WIND MADE MOAN,
EARTH STOOD HARD AS IRON,
WATER LIKE A STONE
SNOW HAD FALLEN,
SNOW ON SNOW,
ON SNOW,
HEAVEN CANNOT HOLD HIM,
NOR EARTH SUSTAIN,
HEAVEN AND EARTH
SHALL FLEE
WHEN HE COMES
TO REIGN.

ANGELS AND ARCHANGELS
MAY HAVE GATHERED THERE,
CHERUBIM AND SERAPHIM,
CHERUBIM AND ARCHANGELS,
ANGELS,
ARCHANGELS,
CHERUBIM,
SERAPHIM
THRONGED THE AIR,
ANGELS AND ARCHANGELS
THRONGED THE AIR
BUT HIS MOTHER
ONLY IN HER MAIDEN BLISS,
WORSHIPED THE BELOVED
WITH A KISS.

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,
WHAT I CAN,
I GIVE HIM:

GIVE MY HEART
IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER,
LONG AGO.
