In the Bleak Midwinter

lyrics

In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

Your God, heaven cannot hold me, nor earth sustain;
Heaven and Earth shall flee away when I come to reign.
In the bleak midwinter a Baltimore sufficed
A growing pile of bodies is your sacrifice

Angels and archangels may be defiled there,
Cherubim and seraphim perished in the air;
But his mother only, in her maiden bliss,
Worshiped the beloved with a kiss.

What can you give me, poor as you are?
If you were a dealer, you would bring a car;
if you were a Wise Man, you would do your part;
Yet what you can give me: a beating heart.
