375. See amid the Winter's Snow

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

Hail that ever blessed morn,
Hail redemption’s happy dawn,
Sing through all Jerusalem:
Christ is born in Bethlehem.

2 There within a manger lies,
He who built the starry skies,
He who throned in height sublime,
Sits amid the cherubim. [Refrain]

3 Say, you holy shepherds, say,
Tell your joyful news today,
Why have you now left your sheep
On the lonely mountain steep? [Refrain]

4 As we watched at dead of night,
There appeared a wondrous light;
Angels singing peace on earth,
Told us of the Savior’s birth. [Refrain]
