O Christmas Tree - Notes

1. O Christmas pine, fair Christmas pine,
Gifts of love we bring thee.
Thy myriad lights in gladness shine,
Carols sweet we sing thee.
We love thy friendly branches wide,
Thou art the joy of Christmas-tide,
O Christmas pine, fair Christmas pine,
With glad songs we greet thee.

2. O mountain pine, O mountain pine,
High thou watchest o'er us;
O mountain pine, O mountain pine,
High thou watchest o'er us;
About thy head the wild winds roar,
But firm thou standest evermore,
O mountain pine, O mountain pine,
With glad songs we greet thee.

3. O mountain pine, O mountain pine,
Faithful art thou ever;
O mountain pine, O mountain pine,
Faithful art thou ever;
Thou art as queen in winter's snow
As in the summer's richest glow;
O mountain pine, O mountain pine,
With glad songs we greet thee.
