Today's Beautiful Gem: `Long, Long Ago' by an Anonymous Author.

"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.

"Then from the happy sky, Angels bent low
Singing their song of joy, Long, long ago.

"For in a manger bed, Cradled we know,
Christ came to Bethlehem, Long, long ago."
