sunday song

I love this song so much that I post it every year.  The winter is a season that can be very bleak with it's colder temperatures and less sunlight that makes daily living and communing with each other difficult.  But in the midst of winter there is this coming of a Savior that heaven couldn't hold and earth couldn't sustain.  In the midst of the darkness there was this wondrous light.

"In A 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. 

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 Almighty, Jesus Christ. 

Enough for Him, Whom cherubim, worship night and day, 
Breastful of milk, and a mangerful of hay; 
Enough for Him, Whom angels fall before, 
The ox and ass and camel which adore. 

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. 

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.
