O Tannenbaum

1.
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
wie grün sind deine Blätter!
Du grünst nicht nur zur Sommerszeit,
nein, auch im Winter, wenn es schneit.
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
wie grün sind deine Blätter!
 
2.
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
du kannst mir sehr gefallen.
Wie oft hat nicht zur Weihnachtszeit
ein Baum von dir mich hoch erfreut!
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
du kannst mir sehr gefallen!
 
3.
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
dein Kleid will mich was lehren:
Die Hoffnung und Beständigkeit
gibt Trost und Kraft zu jeder Zeit.
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
dein Kleid will mich was lehren.

O Evergreen

Versions: #1#2#3#4
O evergreen, O evergreen,
Your leaves remain so faithful!
Not only when it’s summertime,
But in the snowy wintertime,
O evergreen, O evergreen,
Your leaves remain so faithful!
 
O evergreen, O evergreen,
You give me so much pleasure!
I’ve known at every Christmastime
That you have been a friend of mine.
O evergreen, O evergreen,
You give me so much pleasure!
 
O evergreen, O evergreen,
I’d have your clothing teach me:
How hope and patience that is kind
Bring strength and joy to every time.
O evergreen, O evergreen,
I’d have your clothing teach me.
 
Thanks!
