I do love Christmas Carols and whilst its only November and the Autumal colours slowly ebb away into the dampness and we edge into the crispness of Winter. You might think that Winter is Monocrome but through the black and white there is colour, there are the vibrant greens of Holly and the redness of the berries. So really its not that a "Bleak Midwinter " after all.
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. 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."
