SPECIAL OCCASION COLLECTION
The Tree Of Life
As the song says, the Tree of Life is a symbol of the love of God. When I wrote this song and shared it with friends, I was surprised at the perspectives they shared. They told me that people who wish their wayward children would return to the fold would love this song. And to my surprise, this has become true. One woman wrote in to share her story and said, “We’ve done everything we can for our wayward child. The only thing we can do is stay at the tree and enjoy the fruits of the gospel.” I hope this song will help you remember the love of God and how it can hold you and your family together.

The prophet Lehi had a vision
Of the tree of life.
He saw it shining in the distance
So beautiful and bright.
The sweetest fruit he’d ever tasted
And white as white could be.
It filled his soul with joy and gladness;
He beckoned to his family:
Come to the tree of life,
Partake of the fruit.
I feel the love of God,
And you’ll feel it, too,
When you come to the tree of life.
Ther’s joy here and peace.
The greatest place in all the world to be
Is at the tree.
The tree of life is just a symbol
Of the love of God.
The pathway there is strait and narrow,
So hold on to the rod.
His word will guide us through the darkness
And past the mists of gray.
The enemies of God may mock us,
But we will boldly stand and say:
The greatest place
In all the world to be
Is at the tree.
Thrilled to have ordered the music and present it to the Primary children today. All loved it. Thank you Shawna and Ashlynn.
"The greatest joy is at the Tree!" The Atonement of Christ is our joy. God gave us His Son because he loved all of us! Thank you for what this song beautifully explains!
