1. A Rose For You

Music and Words: Karoline Hausted

One of the popular customs in winter is to decorate the Christmas tree with all kinds of wonderful figures and totems. Here’s a simple song of adoration for the tree while we are making ornaments for it, contemplating their meanings, and offering them as gifts…


A rose for you. A tree bearing fruit.
The Earth that froze. The message that broke.

A deer for you. From deep in the woods.
Dependent lives. The sacrifice.

A star for you. A light in my room.
A moment to shine. The search for a truth.

An angel for you. The voice of a child.
A soft mouth that speaks:
Protection and peace.

A heart for you. The sweetest tune.
A night of song. Eternal Love.
