Song # 21385

snow lay on the ground



the snow lay on the ground,
the stars shone bright,
when christ our lord was born
on christmas night.
venite adoremus dominum;
venite adoremus dominum.

refrain

venite adoremus dominum;
venite adoremus dominum;
venite adoremus dominum;
venite adoremus dominum;

’twas mary, daughter pure
of holy anne,
that brought into this world
the god made man.
she laid him in a stall
at bethlehem;
the ass and oxen shared
the roof with them.

refrain

saint joseph, too, was by
to tend the child;
to guard him, and protect
his mother mild;
the angels hovered round,
and sung this song,
venite adoremus dominum.

refrain

and thus that manger poor
became a throne;
for he whom mary bore
was god the son.
o come, then, let us join
the heav’nly host,
to praise the father, son,
and holy ghost.
