- The gift he gave to all mankind,
- We celebrate each Christmas time.
- His gift to us we now remind
- Is a gift only if he's mine.
- To give to us his greatest gift,
- He parted with his greatest love.
- It is not lost from him you see,
- As Christ becomes our treasure trove.
- We can receive this greatest gift
- Only if we ourselves outpour.
- To receive from him is to give
- Ourselves in trust forevermore.
