The very best gift that I ever got
Didn’t come from a department store.
It didn’t come from the shopping mall,
Or the mountains or sunny sea shore.

It didn’t arrive in a big red car,
Or a shiny chuggin’ choo choo train.
It wasn’t delivered by a man with a bag.
But, it’s my favorite just the same.

It didn’t come in a great big box.
It didn’t have a whirly-twirly bow.
It didn’t come in a pretty gift bag.
It’s still my favorite, though.

I bet that you would like to have
A wonderful gift like mine.
You can take it with you anywhere
And keep it with you all the time.

It’s the gift God gave us long ago
In a stable very far away.
It’s a gift I’ll treasure all my life
And it came on Christmas Day.

So, thank you, God, for giving me
This gift from up above.
It’s good and it’s perfect, and it’s all I need,
And it’s filled with your sweet love.

This is a poem I wrote for the children to say in their program. Just imagine angelic little faces talking about the BEST gift. So sweet. I am blessed beyond measure to be able to work with little ones each day…and blessed even more to be allowed to plant seeds of knowledge about our dear Lord.
