lyrics

In the Bleak Midwinter

Christina Rossetti’s poem was written before 1872.
Music by Gustav Holst was added in 1906 and it became a popular carol.
Inspired here by Bert Jansch’s version with lyric adaptations by Nancy K Dillon.

In the bleak midwinter
Long long ago
Earth stood hard as iron
Water like a stone
Snow had fallen, snow on snow
Snow on snow
In the bleak midwinter
A long long time ago

What can I give Him
Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd
I would give a lamb
And if I were a wise man
I'd duly play my part
What can I give Him?
I will give my heart

Angels and Archangels
May have gathered there
Cherubim and Seraphim
Thronging in the air
Earth stood hard as iron
Frosty winds did blow
In the bleak midwinter
A long long time ago
In the bleak midwinter
A long long time ago

about

Nancy K Dillon Seattle, Washington

On her albums, Nancy K. Dillon maps the road West; the dusty highways that conjure up images like Kerouac's road trips, traveling dustbowl carnivals, and free-spirited 70s hipsters. Inspired by Oklahoma & Texas troubadours Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, and Kevin Welch, Dillon's songs are short stories about characters that populate true American life. ... more
