Højt fra træets grønne top ("High from the green tree top") are an old Danish christmas song, originally it was a poem that Peter Faber wrote about his family for the Christmas in 1847, at that time it had 6 verses all including members of the Faber family. The next year Faber teamed up with Emil Horneman and they added two more verses and wrote new music for the song and it was then published in "Sang for Børn" in 1848.

Signe and Elmo sing the second verse in Jul med Jeppe, Marie og Elmo, that are about a little girl named Signe who can't wait to get her Christmas present.
