- 1.The forest raised a Christmas tree,
- ‘Twas silent and serene
- In winter and in summer
- It was slender and so green.
- 2.The wind sang it a lullaby:
- Sleep Christmas tree, sleep tight!
- The snow was making clothes for it:
- It was a pretty sight!
3.A trembling bunny put himself
- Beneath its arms so wide;
- The hungry wolf just passed him by –
- A lovely place to hide!
- 4.Some sleigh bells rang throughout the woods,
- The snow was crisp and clean,
- A horsey brought a forester
- 5.And now it comes to visit us,
- With lights and garlands bright,
- While all the children dance and sing
- To greet it with delight!
