O Christmas Tree

Some historians have said this German folk carol is from the Middle Ages, but most likely it was created in the 16th or 17th centuries.

O Christmas tree! O Christmas tree,
you stand in verdant beauty!
O Christmas tree! O Christmas tree!
you stand in verdant beauty!

Your boughs are green in summer's glow,
and do not fade in winter's snow.
O Christmas tree! O Christmas tree,
you stand in verdant beauty!

O Christmas tree! O Christmas tree,
much pleasure doth thou bring me!
O Christmas tree! O Christmas tree,
much pleasure doth 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 doth thou bring me!

O Christmas tree! O Christmas tree,
thy candles shine out brightly!
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.

O Christmas tree! O Christmas tree,
thy candles shine out brightly.
