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.

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 Savior's birth." [Refrain]

5 Sacred infant, all divine,
shat 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]
