AGH 133

Verse 1

See, amid the winter's snow
Born for us on earth below,
See, the Lamb of God appears
Promised from eternal years!


Hail, thou ever-blessed morn!
Hail, redemption's happy dawns!
Sing through all Jerusalem.
Christ is born in Bethlehem!

Verse 2

Lo, within a manger lies
He who built the starry skies,
He who, throned in height sublime,
Sits amid the cherubim.

Verse 3

Say, ye holy shepherds, say,
What your joyful news today;
Wherefore have ye left your sheep
On the lonely mountain steep!

Verse 4

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.

Verse 5

Sacred infant, all divine,
What a tender love was thine,
Thus to come from highest bliss
Down to such a world as this!

Verse 6

Teach, O teach us holy child,
By thy face so meek and mild,
Teach us to resemble thee
In thy sweet humility
