1.
I have heard of a tree,
a great Christmas tree,
It was fixed in yon Bethlehem's stall.
The blessings of heaven
for you and for me,
A Christmas present for all.

2.
There is a package for me on that tree,
A precious token that someone loves me,
O yes, I can see,
on Calvary's Tree,
That there is a package for me.

3.
There is one I behold,
in letters of gold,
It hangs on a limb near to me,
'Tis labeled "salvation,
and Jesus, I'm told,
has bought that package for me.

4.
There is a package for me on that tree,
A precious token that someone loves me,
O yes, I can see,
on Calvary's Tree,
That there is a package for me.

5.
There is one just above,
it's title is love,
It is marked by a deep crimson stain,
for there it was tied by the
Lord when he died,
and glory to his dear name.

6.
There is a package for me on that tree,
A precious token that someone loves me,
O yes, I can see,
on Calvary's Tree,
That there is a package for me.

7.
Another I see,
it must be for me,
The words "I will help you I read,
While holding His hand,
by faith I can stand,
and this is the package I need.

8.
There is a package for me on that tree,
A precious token that someone loves me,
O yes, I can see,
on Calvary's Tree,
That there is a package for me.

9.
There are many, I'm sure,
but just this one more
I speak of above all the rest
It spells happy home,
with God near the throne,
A place where the weary shall rest.

Lyrics: Charles Albert Tindley, 1915.
