The Perfect Tree

The ornaments are ready
The place has been prepared
Strings of lights and holly
Are draped across the chair
The family’s all together
I know where they must be
Everyone is searching
For the perfect tree

***********The perfect tree, Grew very long ago**********
And it was not decked with silver, Or with ornaments of gold
But hanging from its branches, Was a gift for you and me
*******Jesus laid His life down, On the perfect tree*******

Mother wants a straight one
The children want it tall
Dad just hopes that somehow
He can get it down the hall
Soon they’ll gather round it
As proud as they can be
But when they’re looking at it
I wonder if they see

With all the celebrations
Sometimes the truth is lost
That every step this baby took
Brought Him closer to the cross
