See, amid the winter's snow

See, amid the winter's snow,
Born for us on earth below,
See, the Tender lamb appears,
Promised from eternal years!
Hail, thou ever blessed morn,
Hail, redemption's happy dawn,
Sing through all Jerusalem,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.

Lo, within the manger lies,
He who built the starry skies,
He, who throned in heights sublime,
Sits amid the cherubim.
Hail, thou ever blessed morn,
Hail, redemption's happy dawn,
Sing through all Jerusalem,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.

Say, ye holy shepherds, say,
What your joyful news today?
Wherfore have ye left your sheep
On the lonely mountain steep?
Hail, thou ever blessed morn,
Hail, redemption's happy dawn,
Sing through all Jerusalem,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.

As we watched at dead of night,
Lo, we saw a woundrous light;
Angels singing peace on earth,
Told us of the Savior's birth.
Hail, thou ever blessed morn,
Hail, redemption's happy dawn,
Sing through all Jerusalem,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.
