Winter's Snow

words by Edward Caswall, 1851
tune "Humility" by John Goss, 1871

  1. See amid the winter's snow,
    Born for us on earth below,
    See, the gentle Lamb appears,
    Promised from eternal years.

  2. Hail that ever blessèd morn,
    Hail redemption's happy dawn,
    Sing through all Jerusalem:
    Christ is born in Bethlehem.

  3. Lo, within a manger lies
    He Who built the starry skies;
    He Who, thronèd in height sublime,
    Sits amid the cherubim.

  4. Say, you holy shepherds, say,
    Tell your joyful news today.
    Why have you now left your sheep
    On the lonely mountain steep?

  1. "As we watched at dead of night,
    Lo, we saw a wondrous light;
    Angels singing 'Peace on earth'
    Told us of the Savior's birth."

  2. Sacred Infant, all divine,
    What a tender love was Thine,
    Thus to come from highest bliss
    Down to such a world as this.

  3. Teach, O teach us, holy Child,
    By Thy face so meek and mild,
    Teach us to resemble Thee,
    In Thy sweet humility.
