O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree.....

 
 O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree!
How are thy leaves so verdant!
Not only in the summertime,
But even in winter is thy prime.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
How are thy leaves so verdant!




 O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Much pleasure dost thou bring me!
For ev’ry year the Christmas tree,
Brings to us all both joy and glee.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Much pleasure dost thou bring me!


 



 O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
How lovely are thy branches!
Not only green when summer's here
But in the coldest time of year.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
How lovely are thy branches!




 O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
How sturdy God hath made thee!
Thou bidds't us all place faithfully
Our trust in God, unchangingly!
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
How sturdy God hath made thee!




 O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy candles shine out brightly!
Each bough doth hold its tiny light,
That makes each toy to sparkle bright.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy candles shine out brightly!

  7. Isn't it fun to have to decorate the house with lots of trees?
    Your topper is amazing and I love the idea of using the concordance.
    The last tree in white reminds me of the frosting on a wedding cake. Love it!!

  16. Awwwww, such a lovely selection of trees! I especially am fond of the one done with the hand prints... I've one directly on my wall behind created by my son in school for Valentine's day... not a tree, but a vine. But made with his handprints :) Merry Christmas!
