Long, Long Ago: A Family Carol

A Family Carol
Winds through the olive trees softly did blow
Round little Bethlehem long, long ago.
Sheep on the hillside lay whiter than snow,
Shepherds were watching them long, long ago.
Then from the happy sky Angels bent low,
Singing their songs of joy long, long ago
For in a manger bed, cradled we know,
Christ came to Bethlehem long, long ago.
