Text: 

There was snow — do you remember?
It was many years ago
And we were young, and a star moved through the sky...
The air was cold, and over the hill Came voices, faint and high;
And we sang too, there warm by the fire—
I can hear the laughter still—
All together, giving, glad
And never forgetting why.
That was a time, when we were young
And the world's bright star came by...
Tell me, do you remember?
It was many years ago
But you still may hear the singing, if you try.
