Christmas Songs – In The Bleak Midwinter lyrics

In the bleak midwinter
Frost 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

Our god
Heaven cannot hold him
Nor earth sustain
Heaven and Earth
Shall flee away
When he comes to reign
In the bleak midwinter
A stable place sufficed
The lord God almighty
Jesus Christ

Angels and archangels
May have gathered there
Cherubim and seraphim
Thronged the air
But his mother only
In her maiden bliss
Worshiped 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

    I had never heard this song before but found it while searching for songs for our school Christmas program. When it played, a group of students began singing it and they sounded like an angel choir (3rd graders). I was moved to tears but of course we had to leave out the 2nd stanza due to church/state law. Still it was amazing and is now included in our program. When I hear it it mists my eyes.
