1. Shepherds in the field abiding,

tell us, when the seraph bright

greeted you with wondrous tiding

what you saw and heard that night.

Gloria in excelsis Deo.


2. We beheld it (it is no fable),

God incarnate, King of bliss,

swathed and cradled in a stable,

and the angel strain was this:

Gloria in excelsis Deo.


3. Choristers on high were singing,

Jesus and his Virgin birth

heavenly bells the while a-ring,

"Peace, good will to men on earth."

Gloria in excelsis Deo.


John do you know it ? which one is yours then ?

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.


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 Almighty, Jesus Christ.


3. 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.


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.


My favorite one

... all the dear children in Thy tender care

And fit us for heaven, to live with Thee there.


- from Away in a manger.


Some of them have really silly words though, don't they?


Of course the baby cried when He awoke!!

And HAD snow really fallen, THERE?

(no offence 'Chele)


And what does

"I-O I-O I-O" mean, unless it's about your post-Christmas credit card bill?


Actually, there's my question: who knows that one?
