In the Bleak Midwinter

Author: Christina G. Rossetti Meter: Irregular Appears in 70 hymnals Scripture: Luke 2:8-20 Lyrics: 1 In the bleak midwinter, 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. 2 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 incarnate, Jesus Christ. 3 Angels and archangels May have gathered there, Cherubim and seraphim Thronged the air; But His mother only, In her maiden bliss, Worshipped the beloved With a kiss. 4 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. Used With Tune: CRANHAM

O Sing a Song of Bethlehem

Author: Louis FitzGerald Benson Meter: D Appears in 59 hymnals Scripture: Luke 2:8-15 Lyrics: 1 O sing a song of Bethlehem, Of shepherds watching there, And of the news that came to them From angels in the air: The light that shone on Bethlehem Fills all the world today; Of Jesus’ birth and peace on earth The angels sing alway. 2 O sing a song of Nazareth, Of sunny days of joy, O sing of fragrant flowers’ breath, And of the sinless Boy; For now the flowers of Nazareth In every heart may grow; Now spreads the fame of His dear Name On all the winds that blow. 3 O sing a song of Galilee, Of lake and woods and hill, Of Him who walked upon the sea And bade the waves be still: For though, like waves on Galilee, Dark seas of trouble roll, When faith has heard the Master’s word, Falls peace upon the soul. 4 O sing a song of Calvary, Its glory and dismay; Of Him who hung upon the tree, And took our sins away: For He who died on Calvary Is risen from the grave, And Christ, our Lord, by heaven adored, Is mighty now to save.

Once in Royal David's City

Author: Cecil Frances Alexander (1818-1895) Meter: Appears in 354 hymnals Scripture: Luke 2:1-20 Lyrics: 1 Once in royal David's city stood a lowly cattle shed, where a mother laid her baby in a manger for his bed. Mary was that mother mild, Jesus Christ her little child. 2 He came down to earth from heaven, who is God and Lord of all, and his shelter was a stable, and his cradle was a stall. With the poor and mean and lowly lived on earth our Saviour holy. 3 Not in that poor lowly stable, with the oxen standing by, we shall see him, but in heaven, set at God's right hand on high, when, like stars, his children crowned all in white shall gather round.

To show God's love aright, She bore to us a Savior, When half-spent was the night. 3 This flow'r, whose fragrance tender With sweetness fills the air, Dispels with glorious splendor The darkness ev'rywhere. True man, yet very God, From sin and death he saves us And lightens ev'ry load. 4 O Savior, child of Mary, Who felt our human woe; O Savior, King of glory, Who dost our weakness know: Bring us at length we pray To the bright courts of heaven, And to the endless day.
