The Eternal Gift 
 
 
He did not use a silvery box 
Or paper green and red. 
God laid His Christmas Gift to men 
Within a manger bed 
No silken cord was used to bind 
The Gift sent from above, 
'Twas wrapped in swaddling cloths 
and bound 
In cords of tender love. 
There was no evergreen to which 
His precious Gift was tied. 
Upon a bare tree high on a hill 
His Gift was hung....and died
'Twas taken down from off the tree 
And in a grave was laid the precious Son of God, 
But death itself could not destroy 
The precious Gift of God 
With mighty hand He lifted Him 
From out the stony grave 
Forevermore for everyman 
An eternal Gift He gave
