The Greatest Gift


It is not found in any store
Or by having money galore
Not a life of fun and pleasure
By what you value and treasure

It came one blessed holy night
There appeared a star so bright
It led to a lowly stable with hay
Where a special little baby lay

It was a gift from God above
Because of His wonderful love
Prophecies from the ancient past
Had now been fulfilled at last

Gifts were brought to this King
For redemption He would bring
The way of the cross His destiny
To save mankind for all eternity

This gift is free for you to receive
Just open up your heart and believe
Christmas is not about the presents
It is Jesus and the joy of His presence

Isaiah 9:6 (NIV)
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
