Two trees; this tree, that tree.
This tree, green full of life and youth. That tree, brown rough hewn—bare.
This tree whose limbs bear man’s gift to man. That tree—whose limbs bore God’s gift to man.
This tree that causes us to rejoice in the birth of a man. That tree that causes us to rejoice in the rebirth of mankind.
This tree, the symbol of new life in a baby Boy. That tree, the symbol of Eternal life for all men everywhere.
This tree, reminding us of the time when God gave Himself to man. That tree reminding us of the time when God gave Himself for men.
For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten Son, That whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.
