O Christmas Tree - Notes

1. O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
How true you stand unchanging.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
How true you stand unchanging.
Your boughs so green in summer-time,
Remain so green in winter-time.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
How true you stand unchanging.

2. O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy message is enduring;
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy message is enduring;
So long ago in Bethlehem
Was born the Saviour of all men;
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy message is enduring.

3. O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy faith is so unchanging;
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy faith is so unchanging;
A symbol sent from God above,
Proclaiming Him the Lord of Love;
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy faith is so unchanging.
