Original text and translations
Winter hath its merits too;
Never think that they are few.
Winter hath its blazing fires;
Right good cheer at hearths of sires.
Winter hath its frosty stars,
While, within, its household Lars,
Shine with tenfold sparkling light,
Near the holly, glossy bright.
Sing we then the winter cold,
Sturdy, vigorous and bold,
Sing we then with all our might,
Have we not his Christmas night?
