At The Gates of Heaven Above

Apple trees white are blooming sweetly,
Blooming for Christ, their dearest love
2. At the gates of Heav'n above,
Mary the Mother mild is sitting,
Holding the Christ, her dearest love

Her tiny Babe is weeping sadly,
Weeping is Christ, her dearest boy.

"Hush, my dear Son, I've gifts to give you,
Gifts for the Christ, my dearest love."

"Two lovely pears and two fair apples,
Presents for Christ, my dearest love.

Open to Christ, my dearest love."
