Bringing Home The Tree ~ Anchored In Him ~ Christmas 2003


I'm your Christmas tree
All brightly lit
Hung with angels
Colored balls and elves

Underneath my boughs
Your presents sit
If you've behaved yourselves
Why must we wait till

Early Christmas morn
To open up our brand new
Games and toys
Why gifts for us the day

That Christ was born
Now listen to your
Christmas tree I'm wise
If we're good girls and boys

In all the ways of faith
That you must know
I'm here because
Of what I symbolize

Green through ice and snow
There is a world beyond
What we can see
Where by grace of God

Believe God loves you
Eternal life is what
If only we can believe
We can receive God's
Greatest gift to live eternally

God gave to you
In sending down His
Son to live on Earth
This was His gift

So Santa brings gifts too
To celebrate Christ's birth
The baby Jesus got gifts
Because like any child

He loved to play
And so God wants to
Share this special joy
With every girl and boy

Believe God loves you
As your parents do
And takes great joy
In giving gifts to you

Live well and love
And evergreen like me
You'll live eternally
