God's Christmas Gift
1. Long ago, in Bethlehem,
God sent His Holy Son;
A precious Gift to save the world;
The pure, Anointed one.
2. Every year, at Christmastime,
The presents 'round the tree
Remind me to receive the Christ:
The Gift God gives to me.
Chorus: Jesus Christ gave His life;
God planned it from the start.
Each day I live, each gift I give
Will show my thankful heart.
Coda: Jesus is the Christmas gift
God gives to you and me.
