Winds Through The Olive Trees Lyrics – Winifred E Rees

As Sung:
Winds through the olive trees softly did blow
‘Round little Bethlehem long, long ago

Sheep on the hillside lay whiter than snow
Shepherds were watching them, long, long ago

For in a manager bed cradled we know,
Christ came to Bethlehem, long, long ago.
 

Other Traditional Verses:
Then from the happy skies angels bent low
Singing their songs of joy, long, long ago

Yes in a manger bed cradled we know,
Christ came to Bethlehem, long, long ago.
Chorus
