W: W:2 W:Our God, heaven cannot hold Him, nor earth sustain; W:Heaven and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign. W:In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed W:The Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ. W: W:3 W:Enough for Him, Whom cherubim, worship night and day, W:Breastful of milk, and a mangerful of hay; W:Enough for Him, Whom angels fall before, W:The ox and ass and camel which adore. W: W:4 W:Angels and archangels may have gathered there, W:Cherubim and seraphim thronged the air; W:But His mother only, in her maiden bliss, W:Worshipped the beloved with a kiss. W: W:5 W:What can I give Him, poor as I am? W:If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb; W:If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part; W:Yet what I can I give Him: give my heart. % % % % % % % % % % %]
