Gently falls the winter snow
A variant version of the Rev. Edward Caswall's familiar text, "See amid the winter's snow." The tune is by George Edgar Oliver (1855-1941) who was organist of a number of churches including All Saints' Episcopal Cathedral in Albany, New York. The last two bars of the chorus are oddly similar to the last two bars of Sir John Goss' well-known tune to the same text.
