If I could be a Christmas tree,
The decoration you might see
Would be quite different from the norm,
Colorful and brightly warm.
My branches would be filled with light,
And I would shine both day and night
To tell of Jesus' wondrous birth
And speak His love throughout the earth.
For He gives ornaments of gold...
Love and peace which don't grow old,
Joy and hope which draw folks near
And offer Heaven 's eternal cheer.
With Jesus' beauty I could be
A vital, living Christmas tree,
With lights and garlands which decree
The love of God for all to see.
