Ice and snow, ice and snow, Frozen fields where e'er we go. Frozen fields and frozen lakes, Frosted o'er like wedding cakes. Girls and boys leave your toys. Come and taste cold-weather joys. Bring your sleds and bring your skates. Hasten now while winter waits.
Remember the hungry, remember the cold, Who once were poor children, who've now grown old. For Christmas angels to Earth now bend near, To see who shows kindness to those who are dear. So welcome the needy, give alms or give bread. You may find you've entertained angels instead.
