See Amid the Winter's Snow: one of my favourite Christmas carols, recorded at my church on Sunday

Dec 23, 2015, 01:17 AM

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.
