"O Christmas Tree" (originally known as "O Tannenbaum") is a German Christmas song. Based on a traditional folk song, it became associated with the traditional Christmas tree by the early 20th century and sung as a Christmas carol.

The song is featured in Disney Sing Along Songs: The Twelve Days of Christmas. It is also heard in the film Santa Buddies, sung by a group of young carolers.

Lyrics

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
How steadfast are your branches!
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
How steadfast are your branches!
Your boughs are green in summer's clime
And through the snows of wintertime
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
How steadfast are your branches!

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
What happiness befalls me
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
What happiness befalls me
When oft at joyous Christmastime
Your form inspires my song and rhyme
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
What happiness befalls me

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
Your boughs can teach a lesson
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
Your boughs can teach a lesson
That constant faith and hope sublime
Lend strength and comfort through all time
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
Your boughs can teach a lesson
