THE GREATEST GIFT
The Baby named Jesus was born one night
under a star in the east that was filled with light.
It served as a guide for three wise strangers
bearing gifts of worth for the Child in the manger.
Though...it makes you wonder why God would allow
His Son to bed in the trough of a cow.
On us too, it is sometimes lost,
His reason for living, to hang on a cross
Yet, who could know what God would send...
He gave us a Gift that would never end.
The wee little Tot, who slept in the hay,
His life was given to show us the way.
Believe in Him today and receive the Gift of Eternal Life this Christmas !
