LYRICS:

O Tree of Life!
When spring arises hear our voices singing—
Alleluia!
Of blossoms promising the fruit we’re seeking—
Alleluia!
New life in Thee we’re seeking—
Alleluia!

O Tree of Life!
When summer nourishes our life emerging—
Alleluia!
And fruit is born, abundant, bright, appearing—
Alleluia!
Sweet fruit of life appearing!
Alleluia!

O Tree of Life!
When autumn calls, Thine outstretched arms entreating—
Alleluia!
Bid us come forth and feast on life descending—
Alleluia!
The feast of life descending!
Alleluia!

O Tree,
When winter comes to Thee, we bend in Thee,
Thou purest Tree! Resplendent Tree!
Here we rest, we rest in Thee!
O Tree of Life!

O Tree of Life!
Bearing fruit of purest white,
Of sweet, exquisite taste—
Sweet fruit that makes us whole!
In Thee made whole!
Thy feast all life restores!
The fruit of Thy pure love is our Life forever more!
Alleluia!
