1. Thou green and glittering tree, good day!
With joy and gladness we hial your comingt;
Bedecked with candles and spangles gay,
Your topmost star is as sunlight dawning!
Our hearts' reminder, of Heaven's splendor,
Our hearts' reminder of Heaven's splendor,
And God's great love, And God's great love.

2. When Jesus came to the earth that day,
The largest star in the sky He lighted;
He gave a beacon to show the way
To ev'ry soul, His salvation plighted.
Above Him singing, The angels winging,
Above Him singing, The angels winging,
O'er Bethlehem, O'er Bethlehem.

3. Oft-times at evening in our old home,
Our dearest Mother would tell the story
Of Jesus' love, and his words sublime --
The mem'ry fills our hearts with glory.
The tree in splendor our heart's reminder,
The tree in splendor our heart's reminder
Of God's great love, Of God's great love.
