    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.
