"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.

Lyrics

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
[Chorus]
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
[Chorus]
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
[Chorus]
