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 family’s 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 they’ll gather 'round it,
As proud as they can be,
But when they’re looking at it
I wonder if they see

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.

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

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.
