Look Inside

This familiar Christmas carol is given an ethereal setting by Brian L. Hanson. Supported by a gentle, lilting accompaniment, the strains of “Still, Still, Still” interweave in both the accompaniment and choral parts. Soaring vocal lines, rich harmonies, and imaginative text painting point to the wonder and mystery of Christmas.

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.

Heaven cannot hold Him,
Nor earth sustain;
Heav’n and earth shall flee away
When He comes to reign;
In the bleak midwinter,
A stable place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty,
Jesus Christ.

Still, still, still,
One can hear the falling snow.
For all is hushed, the world is sleeping,
Holy star its vigil keeping.
Still, still, still,
One can hear the falling snow.

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—
What can I give Him?
Give my heart.
