Lyrics:

1.She came a-rid din' down the moun-tain
she came a-rid in' thru the snow
She came a-rid in' in the moon-light,
to our dark, dark val-ley down be-low.
She came a-rid-in' on a po-ny
She came a-rid-in' soft and slow
She came a-rid-in' in the star-light,
To our dark, dark val-ley down be-low.

A-ve Mar-i-a child-ren
Sweet Mar-y, filled with ho-ly grace,
A-ve Mar-i-a child-ren
She brings heav-en's light to this dark place.
 

2._There was a man who walked beside her,
a gentle man who led the way,
He brought her safely down the mountain,
to our dark, dark valley they all came,
She came a-ridin' down the mountain,
a holy child she soon would bear,
a gift from heaven she was bringing,
to the dark dark valleys everywhere.

A-ve Mar-i-a child-ren
Sweet Mar-y, filled with ho-ly grace,
A-ve Mar-i-a child-ren
She brings heav-en's light to this dark place.
