The Highest Gift

To all of you and yours from Lura and Myself
Of Messiah's birth In celebration
A Merry Christmas to you we wish
Our Victory in him remember

In buying, giving and receiving
the many gifts to you and me
from him and her

Pause to remember,
The greatest gift of all
remember, reflect, rejoice.

The price He paid
without reservation
So high, so dear

Born of love
Greater than all
mine or yours, his or hers

So when gifts you give
whose birthday it is remember
and think to give
to Him the gift
that meets the love he showed

Merry Christmas all!
