The Faith We Sing Number 2093
Text: Anglo-English carol
Music: English melody; adapt. by Charles Winfred Douglas; harm. by Leo Sowerby
Tune: VENITE ADOREMUS, Meter: 10 10.10 10 with Refrain

1. 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.

2. '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)

3. And thus that manger poor
became a throne,
for he whom Mary bore
was God the Son.
O come, then, let us join
the heavenly host;
to praise the Father, Son,
and Holy Ghost.
(Refrain)
