Christmas Carol Spotlight: O Christmas Tree - The history of and lyrics to "O Christmas Tree." #ChristmasTree #OChristmasTree

This Christmas Carol is a wildly popular holiday song. In fact, the song is so popular that there are many different versions, each of which is based on a traditional German folk song. That song, “O Tannenbaum,” is centuries old and has nothing to do with Christmas.

Lyrics

O.C.T. = O Christmas tree, [x2]

Thy leaves are so unchanging

O.C.T.

Thy leaves are so unchanging

Not only green when summer’s here

But also when it’s cold and drear

O.C.T.

Thy leaves are so unchanging

O.C.T.

Such pleasure do you bring me

O.C.T.

Such pleasure do you bring me

For every year this Christmas tree

Brings to us such joy and glee

O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree

Such pleasure do you bring me

O.C.T.

You’ll ever be unchanging

A symbol of goodwill and love

You’ll ever be unchanging

Each shining light, each silver bell

No one alive spreads cheer so well

O.C.T.

You’ll ever be unchanging
