Unwrap The Gifts
By Christine Hare Tate
Unwrap the gifts of love, gentleness, charity,
kindness, thoughtfulness, compassion and mercy;
these are freely given to open and share
with your fellowman anytime, anywhere!
In our hearts we honor and celebrate the Lord;
amid the boughs of holly, praise Him in accord.
Shout Alleluia one and all, worship God most high,
Jesus, Savior of mankind to save us had to die.
but He’s alive and well and beckons men of clay,
to turn away from sin and follow Him each day.
The gifts that you unwrap keep giving all year thru,
and our transformed lives reveal what the Lord can do!
‘Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,
who does not change like shifting shadows.’
