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.
