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.

Refrain:
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]
