Gifts are filled with surprises

All wrapped as a single delight,

With a love expressed from the giver

And a joy in the recipient’s sight.

Gifts are always pleasant

When they’re bestowed from the heart,

With a sincere kiss and the best of wishes

They’re a wonderful work of art.

But the greatest gifts cannot be bought

As no monetary value exists;

They’re comprised of family and friends

When their warmth is total bliss.

The greatest of gifts are always free

When they’re filled with kindness and love;

When we sacrifice our effort and time

As an extension of God’s hand above.

God showers us with His blessings

And keeps all of His promises;

The gifts He gives are priceless indeed

As He extends His very best.

The greatest gift given to mankind

Was free but most valuable,

With a worth extending into eternity

When our name God calls.

God’s gift was precious and rare indeed

And delivered as Jesus Christ;

The most expensive presence the world could receive

But all that would suffice.

The noblest of gifts He was indeed

When He unwraps the sin from our soul,

To fill us with His pure Spirit…

The greatest gift we could ever unfold!
