it was fixed in yon Bethlehem's, Bethlehem's stall.
The blessings of heaven for you and for me,
a Christmas present for all.
There is a package for me on that tree;
a precious token that someone loves me.
Oh yes, I can see on Calvary's Tree,
that there is a package for me.
2 There is one I behold in letters of gold,
It hangs on a limb near to, limb near to me.
'Tis labeled "salvation," and Jesus, I'm told,
has bought that package for me. [Refrain]
3 There is one just above, it's title is love,
it is marked by a deep crimson, deep crimson stain.
For there it was tied by the Lord when he died,
and glory to his dear name. [Refrain]
4 Another I see, it must be for me,
the words "I will help you" I, help you I read.
While holding his hand, by faith I can stand,
and this is the package I need. [Refrain]
5 There are many I'm sure, but just this one more
I speak of above all the, bove all the rest.
It spells "happy home" with God near the throne,
a place where the weary shall rest.
