See, amid the winter's snow – Humility

First line:
See, amid the winter's snow
author of text

See amid the winter’s snow has words by Edward Caswall and music by John Goss. The text of the original hymn was first published in 1858 in The masque of mary and other poems. Caswell wrote these verses soon after converting from the Church of England to the Roman Catholic Church. Goss’s melody dates from 1871. Entitled 'Hymn for Christmas Day', it was included in the 1871 Christmas carols old and new by Henry Ramsden Bramley and John Stainer.
