O Tannenbaum Revisted

O Christmas Tree
(verses1 & 5 traditional, others by Gord Waldie)

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
How steadfast are your branches!
Your boughs are green in summer's clime
And through the snows of wintertime.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
How steadfast are your branches!

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
In you we see God's Promise
That even though we might despair
God's brings us life and hope to share
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
In you we see God's Promise

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
What wonderful surprises.
Where we expect to only find
cold barren ground you blow our minds.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
What wonderful surprises.

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
You speak of life unending
Though all around is ice and snow
still life goes on while cold winds blow.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
You speak of life unending

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
Your boughs can teach a lesson
That constant faith and hope sublime
Lend strength and comfort through all time.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
Your boughs can teach a lesson.
