lifeblood: songs: lyrics: in the bleak midwinter


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

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
(wise man i'd give him)
i would do my part
(poor as i am)
what can i give him
give my heart

what can i give him
(what can i give him)
poor as i am
(poor as i am)
if i were a shepherd
(if i were a shepherd)
i would bring a lamb
(i'd bring a lamb)
if i were a wise man
(if i were a wise man)
i would do my part
(i'd do my part)
what can i give him
give my heart
