The Best Gift

Christmas wrapping red and gold
Gifts for loved ones young and old
Excitement swells and children sneak
Under the tree to take a peak

At all the mystery under foil
Don’t open now or you will spoil
The treasured moment on Christmas Day
Revealing toys with which to play

Now in the splendor of the moment
Don’t forget why we celebrate
Gifts exchanged are symbolic
of treasures given that Holy Date

When God stepped down off His throne
And entered this world, a baby…lone
To a simple young girl, this child her first
divinely conceived, a virgin birth

Such an odd place to be born a King
A stable, in a manger, no signet ring
Yet His palace is a lofty place on high
Beyond the cosmos, above the sky

Where we too will reside if we believe
The best gift of all we could ever receive
