The Perfect Tree

Words by Ray Boltz, Music by Steve Millikan and Ray Boltz

The ornaments are ready
The place has been prepared
Strings of lights and holly
Are draped across the chair
The familys 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 theyll gather round it
As proud as they can be
But when theyre looking at it
I wonder if they see

CHORUS (repeat)

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

CHORUS (repeat 2X)
