V1:
C#                         A#m
        In the bleak mid-winter
     F#                  G#

  Frosty wind made moan,
 C#                        A#m
Earth stood hard as iron,
    F#  G#        C#

Water like a stone;
F#                    A#m
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
C#                      G#

Snow on snow on snow
C#                    A#m
In the bleak mid-winter
    F#  G#        C#

  Lo   -  ng       ago.

Our God, Heaven cannot hold Him
Nor earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away
When He comes to reign:
In the bleak mid-winter
A stable-place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty,
Jesus Christ.

Enough for Him, whom cherubim
Worship night and day,
A breastful of milk,
And a mangerful of hay;
Enough for Him, whom angels
Fall down before,
The ox and ass and camel
Which adore.

Angels and archangels
May have gathered there,
Cherubim and seraphim
Thronged the air -
But only His mother
In her maiden bliss
Worshipped the Beloved
With a kiss.

What can I give Him,
Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd
I would bring a lamb;
If I were a wise man
I would do my part;
Yet what I can, I give Him -
Give my heart.
