1 O let us praise the Christmas tree;
Its beauty, how amazing!
What joy it brings to you and me,
And how we clap our hands in glee
When all its lights are blazing!
When all its lights are blazing!
Yes, blazing.

2 For lo, in this most holy night
The Christ to us was given;
Had He not saved us by His might,
In darkness there would be no light,
But now the clouds are riven,
But now the clouds are riven,
Yes, riven.

3 And from the throne of God on high
A flood of light comes streaming;
The night is gone, no more we sigh,
Our hearts are bright with hope and joy,
Our faces, too, are beaming,
Our faces, too, are beaming,
Yes, beaming.

4 O Christmas tree, to thee we bring
Our praises loudly chanted,
And hallelujahs, too, we sing
To Christ, our Prophet, Priest and King,
The Life-tree, in us planted,
The Life-tree, in us planted,
Yes, planted.
