See Amid the Winter's Snow: one of my favourite Christmas carols, recorded at my church on Sunday
This carol seems to be played very seldom these days, which is most unfortunate because it's really quite lovely. I sang this when I was in choir at school, and I have very fond memories of it. The words are as follows: See, amid the winter's snow, Born for us on Earth below, See, the tender Lamb appears, Promised from eternal years.
Chorus: 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 among the cherubim.
Say, ye holy shepherds,say, What your joyful news today; Wherefore have ye left your sheep On the lonely mountain steep?
"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."
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.
