O Christmas Tree - Notes

1. O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
How faithful are thy branches.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
How faithful are thy branches.
In summer greenly dost thou grow
Thou'rt green amid the winter's snow
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
How faithful are thy branches.

2. O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
I love thee very dearly.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
I love thee very dearly.
On many a happy Christmas night,
Thou brought'st me gifts and joy and light.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
I love thee very dearly.
