The gift that is Christmas can never be found
In crowded malls where shoppers abound.
Nor will you find it in boxes of gold;
It's far to precious to be bought, or sold.
You won't find it hidden in strings of bright lights,
In holiday goodies or in toys that delight.
It never comes packaged in gift wrap and bow;
Oh, where is it hidden? Does anyone know?
You'll find it's a gift from the Father above
Sent special delivery to you with His love.
And once you've received it, handle it with care,
Treasure it always, and remember to share.
Open it often; don t tuck it away,
For it grows more precious with each passing day.
This wonderful Gift What is it? you say.
It's the gift of the Christ Child, the Truth and the Way.
If you've not yet received it, there's still time, my friend.
Just open your heart and invite Jesus in.
Your life will be changed and your sins washed away.
And you'll follow Him in glory to Heaven someday!
