We sang this in Catholic School in NYC during the 40’s and 50’s. It started with the lyrics:
Beneath the olive shadows,
Our lady sat and spun,
A soft and tiny garment,
For her dear and precious One etc.
Thanks for your help,
If anyone can help Peter with the lyrics to the Christmas Hymn, please comment below.
Thanks in advance!
