See amid the winter's snow


Sir. John Goss


Edward Caswall.


See amid the winter's snow,
   born for us on earth below,
see, the gentle Lamb appears,
   promised from eternal years.

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 amid 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.

 (The first line may be "See within a manger low")
