I love Fernando Ortega’s simple heart-felt expression in song.
He has released a four track EP of Christmas themed songs – Lo, How A Rose E’er Blooming.
We’re big fans of Edward Caswell’s See Amid The Winter Snow and Fernando’s rendition does not disappoint.
The verse order may vary a bit and there may be another verse in some versions, but these five are in most popular collections.

The lyrics:
1
See, amid the winter’s snow,
born for us on earth below,
see the tender Lamb appears,
promised from eternal years.
Refrain
Hail! Thou ever-blessed morn!
Hail, redemption’s happy dawn!
Sing through all Jerusalem,
“Christ is born in Bethlehem.”
2
Lo, within a manger lies
He who built the starry skies;
He, who throned in height sublime,
sits amid the cherubim!
Refrain
3
Say, ye holy shepherds, say,
what your joyful news today;
wherefore have ye left your sheep
on the lonely mountain steep?
Refrain
4
Sacred Infant, all divine,
what a tender love was Thine;
thus to come from highest bliss
down to such a world as this!
Refrain
5
“As we watched at dead of night,
lo, we saw a wondrous light;
angels singing ‘Peace on earth’
told us of the Savior’s birth.”
Refrain
