In The Bleak Mid-Winter

In the bleak mid winter 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

In the bleak midwinter
A stable-place sufficed
The Lord God almighty,
Jesus Christ

But his mother only
In her maiden bliss
Worshipped the beloved
With a kiss
