It’s time to peek inside our box of ornaments to see
Which ones we’ll choose to decorate our Christmas story tree.
Let’s hang a cane of peppermint upon the nearest bough
To tell of shepherds watching lambs, as Jesus watches now.
The angel on the highest branch still sings the joyful song
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men, of pardon for our wrongs.
We’ll set a star of silver here among the twinkling lights,
Like one that shone on Bethlehem that sacred, starry night.
And there beneath the tree we’ll place a package wrapped in red,
Reminding of our Lord’s great gifts—His love, the blood He shed.
Our Christmas tree is ever green; its needles never fall.
Our Savior dear was born to bring eternal life to all.
Our Savior dear was born to bring eternal life to all.
