199. See, amid the Winter's Snow

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

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

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

3 Say, ye holy shepherds, say,--
What's your joyful news today?
Wherefore have ye left your sheep
On the lonely mountain steep? (Refrain)

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." (Refrain)

5 Sacred Infant, all divine,
What a tender love was thine,
Thus to come from highest bliss
Down to such a world as this! (Refrain)

6 Teach, O teach us, holy Child,
By thy face so meek and mild,
Teach us to resemble thee,
In thy sweet humility. (Refrain)
