dig their roots down deep
stretch their branches toward the stars

They never grow weary
in the wintry storms
they hold fast to their life

they are constants
they are strength

and in the bleak midwinter
they sacrifice themselves
to light and color
to bring others joy

no wonder they are crowned with stars
no wonder they are clothed in glory

oh mighty tree
you keep growing
in the soil of a country
i can no longer call home

but the sweetness of your fragrance
won't let me go
