TO THE FIR-TREE

FROM THE GERMAN

O Fir-tree green! O Fir-tree green!
   Your leaves are constant ever,
Not only in the summer time,
But through the winter's snow and rime
   You're fresh and green forever.

O Fir-tree green! O Fir-tree green!
   I still shall love you dearly!
How oft to me on Christmas night
Your laden boughs have brought delight.
O Fir-tree green! O Fir-tree green!
   I still shall love you dearly.
