The Gift

When people ask you
What you'd like for Christmas every year
Do you stop and wonder if
Mere gifts could stop the tears?

Have you held your heart inside
A fist so tight and strong
That nothing and no one could help
You heal from someone's wrong?

You did not come by twist of fate
Nor earthly invitation
Not even kindly words of friends
Did beckon to this station

This Christmas you will find a gift
That's ready for you now
The simple gift of sacrifice
That slept on bed of straw

It is a holy incident
When people find the peace
The simple gift the Christ child is
He is the Sweet Release!


This Christmas, may you find the Joy youv'e been searching for in Christ Jesus.
