"Long, Long Ago"


       
 
1.
Winds through the olive trees,
Softly did blow,
'Round little Bethlehem,
Long, long ago.
 
       
 
2.
Sheep on the hillside lay,
Whiter than snow,
Angels were watching them,
Long, long ago.
 
       
  3. Then from the happy sky,
Angels bent low,
Singing their songs of joy,
Long, long ago.
 
       
  4. Then from a manger bed,
Cradled, we know,
Christ came to Bethlehem,
Long, long ago.
