  • In The Bleak Midwinter : Choir of Kings College, Cambridge

    4:34

    Listen to King's College Choir, free, on their website:





    The choir of Kings College Chapel, Cambridge sing the lovely Christmas carol, In The Bleak Midwinter. The wonderful words of Christina Georgina Rossetti are sung to a beautiful setting by Gustav Holst.

    1. In the bleak mid-winter
    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 mid-winter
    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 mid-winter
    A stable-place sufficed
    The Lord God Almighty,
    Jesus Christ.

    3. Enough for Him, whom cherubim
    Worship night and day,
    A breast full of milk
    And a manger full of hay;
    Enough for Him, whom angels
    Fall down before,
    The ox and ass and camel
    Which adore.

    4. Angels and archangels
    May have gathered there,
    Cherubim and seraphim
    Thronged the air,
    But only His mother
    In her maiden bliss,
    Worshipped the Beloved
    With a kiss.

    5. 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.

  • James Taylor - In The Bleak Midwinter

    4:08

    In The Bleak Midwinter is track #11 on the album James Taylor at Christmas. It was written by Abbott, Steve / Tilley, Ian / Neary, Martin / Traditional, / Unknown, Writer.

    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.

    * In The Bleak Midwinter (Lyrics)

    In the bleak mid-winter, the frosty wind did moan
    The earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone
    Snow had fallen softly, snow on snow on snow
    In the bleak mid-winter, oh so long ago

    Our God, heaven cannot hold Him nor the earth sustain
    Heaven and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign
    In the bleak mid-winter a stable place sufficed
    For the Lord almighty, Jesus Christ

    Oh what can I give Him, woeful as I am
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb
    If I were a wiseman, oh I would do my part
    Yet, what can I give Him -- I will give my heart
    Oh what can I give Him -- I will give my heart

    Arrangement by Sally DeFord

    Lyrics:

    In the bleak midwinter, frost 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.
    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.

    ... rejoice in the birth of our Savior. We celebrate the birth of the Son of God, the Creator, our Messiah. We rejoice that the King of kings came to earth, was born in a manger, and lived a perfect life. When Jesus was born, the joy in heaven was so great it could not be contained, and angelic hosts parted the veil, proclaiming unto shepherds “good tidings of great joy, . . . praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”
    Wise Men “rejoiced with exceeding great joy. And when . . . they saw the young child with Mary his mother, [they] fell down, and worshiped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts.”
    It is only fitting that we—like the Wise Men, shepherds, and angels—take time to rejoice and celebrate that glorious first Christmas Day.
    Dieter F. Uchtdorf

  • Sissel Kyrkjebø - In The Bleak Mid-Winter - 2006

    3:37

    Sissel, the international singing sensation from Norway, is widely regarded as one of the finest and most talented sopranos in the world. Her crystalclear voice has made Sissel a national institution in Norway. Sissel has sung all over the world, selling over ten million solo albums. She contributed the haunting vocal tracks for the soundtrack to Titanic. She has been doing great duets with singers like Placido Domingo, Andrea Bocelli, Bryn Terfel, Jose Carreras, Russell Watson, Mario Frangoulis, Josh Groban, Neil Sedaka and Charles Aznavour. A very remarkable voice you will only hear once in your lifetime.

    In the Bleak Mid-Winter is a Christmas carol and the lyrics were written as a poem by English poet Christina Rossetti before 1872. It was published posthumously in Rossetti's Poetic Works in 1904 and became a Christmas carol after it appeared in The English Hymnal in 1906 with a setting by Holst.
    The text of this Christmas poem has been set to music many times, the most famous settings being composed by Gustav Holst and Harold Edwin Darke in the early 20th century.
    In Norway this song is called I En Steingrå Vinter and can be found on Sissel`s latest release Strålande Jul from 2009.

    Lyrics
    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.

    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 can I give Him... give my heart.

    Lyrics:

    In the bleak midwinter, frost 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
    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, I would do my part;
    Yet what I can I give him: give my heart
