The Gifts of Christmas

By Jeff Kocherhans

Through the night they came on camelback
Following a star to Bethlehem
In their hearts were hopes of peace on earth
In their hands were gifts
For the newborn king
So today like then
Each Christmas finds us giving
Gifts from hearts of love
To all our precious ones

But all the Gifts of Christmas
Are only to remind us
Of what we?re celebrating
God?s gift of love and light
Cause all the gifts of Christmas
Are something like
The one that lay in a manger that night

Gifts to just say thanks for being you
Gifts to say I love you, I really do
Gifts of understanding, gifts of song
Gifts of love and kindness
The whole year long
All of them together
Are a tiny shadow
Of that one great gift
The greatest gift of all

And all the Gifts of Christmas?(repeat chorus with variation)
But all the gifts of Christmas
Are nothing like
The one that lay in a manger that night

Every hope was born again that night
When Heaven touched the earth
And left a gift to dry all tears
And bring us to His light
Alleluia, Alleluia

All the gifts of Christmas?(repeat chorus with variation)
