"The Greatest Gift"

The brightly shining star-
marks the place where you are.
The child lying in the manger-
that need not be a stranger.

Heís your Savior and your friend-
beside you to the end.
A gift to all of mankind-
from now to the end of time.

The child in swaddling clothes-
is the Messiah. The sweetest Rose.
Bringing to us true redemption-
should we only let Him in.

So rejoice for the Saviorís birth-
the greatest gift given to the Earth!
Given to me and given to you-
Bringing to each of us life anew!
