See Amid the Winter's Snow

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

Hail, thou ever blessed morn;
hail, redemption's happy dawn;
sing through all Jerusalem.

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 mighty love was Thine,
thus to come from highest bliss
down to such a world as this!

Hail, thou ever blessed morn;
hail, redemption's happy dawn;
sing through all Jerusalem.
