Lyrics

1.

The snow lay on the ground,

the stars shone bright,

When Christ our Lord was born

on Christmas night.

Veníte, adorémus Dóminum,

Veníte, adorémus Dóminum.

Refrain

Veníte, adorémus Dóminum,

Veníte, adorémus Dóminum.

2.

’Twas Mary, Virgin 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.

3.

Saint Joseph, too was near

to tend the child;

To guard him and protect

his mother mild:

The angels hover’d ’round, and sang this song:

Veníte, adorémus Dóminum.

4.

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.
