I paused a moment to say a prayer,
I asked for wisdom and strength -
I took a deep breath and pulled him close
and then I began to speak.
Sweet boy, I know you think
gifts come when you behave
but these gifts I have for you
I will never take away.
Little one, the bitter truth
is none of us are worthy.
But despite our flaws and shortcomings
God grants His love and mercy.
These little gifts I have for you
are just a token of the truth
that the ultimate gift is Jesus Christ
who died for me and you.
So take these gifts in the name of God;
give Him glory and praise.
For it was His only Son,
whom from the dead, he raised.
Christmas gifts are meant to be
a symbol of God's love,
not by deeds, but instead by grace
were we saved by His only Son.
