The Snow Lay On The Ground lyrics:

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.

Chorus:
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.

Chorus:
Venite adoremus Dominum
Venite adoremus Dominum
Venite adoremus Dominum
Venite adoremus Dominum

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.

Chorus:
Venite adoremus Dominum
Venite adoremus Dominum
Venite adoremus Dominum
Venite adoremus Dominum

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.

Chorus:
Venite adoremus Dominum
Venite adoremus Dominum
Venite adoremus Dominum
Venite adoremus Dominum
