"Twas in the Moon of Wintertime" or "The Huron Christmas Carol" is a Canadian Christmas song written by Father Jean de Brebeuf and translated by J.E. Middleton.


Twas in the moon of wintertime when all the birds had fled
That mighty Gitchi Manitou sent angels choirs instead
Before their light the stars grew dim and wondering hunters heard the hymn
Jesus your King is born
Jesus is born
In excelsis gloria
Within a lodge of broken bark the tender babe was found
A ragged robe of rabbit skin enwrapped His beauty round
And as the hunter braves drew nigh the angel song rang loud and high
O children of the forest free O sons of Manitou
The holy child of Earth and heaven is born today for you
Come kneel before the radiant boy who brings you beauty peace and joy
