In One of Those Countries He Was Born
There are countries where people have never seen the snow.
There are countries where pine-apples grow,
There are countries with granite ridge,
There are countries with no bridge.
In those countries the flowers are more fragrant,
In those countries there is a beautiful salient,
In those countries the stars are brighter,
In those countries the spring is elegant and lighter.
In one of those countries I’ve heard the horn:
In one of those countries Jesus Christ was born!
