O Christmas Tree - Notes

1. O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
With faithful leaves unchanging.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
With faithful leaves unchanging.
Not only green in summer's heat
But also winter's snow and sleet,
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
With faithful leaves unchanging

2. O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
You fill all hearts with gaiety
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
You fill all hearts with gaiety
On Christmas Day, you stand so tall,
Affording joy to one and all.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
You fill all hearts with gaiety
