Sang til juletræet

Language: Norwegian (Bokmål)

Du grønne, glitrende træ, goddag!
Velkommen, du, som vi ser saa gjerne,
med julelys og med norske flag
og høit i toppen den blanke stjerne!
Ja, den maa skinne,
for den skal minde
os om vor Gud!

Den første jul, i et fremmed land,
sin store stjerne Vorherre tændte;
den skulde vise vor jord, at han
den lille Jesus til verden sendte.
I stjerneglansen
gik engledansen
om Betlehem.

Om Jesusbarnet fortalte mor
saa mangen aften, vi sad herhjemme;
vi kan hans bud og hans milde ord,
vi ved, at aldrig vi dem maa glemme.
Naar stjernen skinner,
om ham os minder
vort juletræ!
