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!
