Snow Has Fallen Down Upon Us
Snow Has Fallen... MP3
Tune: "Schnee ist über uns gefallen", German folk song
Snow has fallen down upon us,
Fallen... - Version 2
and the winds are growing quiet.´
Tune: "Angels we have heard on high"
But the shine in every snowflake
tells us of the coming light,
tells us of the coming light.
Stars already know the hour
when the solstice turns the tide,
and the sun in all its power
puts the winter dark to flight,
puts the winter dark to flight.
Now the flames are burning higher,
hidden spark revealed again.
Beacon of the Yulenight fire
lights the ways of Gods and men,
lights the ways of Gods and men.
