The Greatest Gift Poem by Patricia Grantham


A wonderful Saviour was born in a manger
To all that knew Him, He was no stranger
He gave His life so that we all might live
To love and cherish and also to forgive

A special gift from God sent to you and me
One that is not found under the Christmas tree
Came down to earth so that we all could be free
An unwrapped present placed for all of us to see

Many showers of blessings and joy to another
Love for each other like those from a mother
Be like an Angel to someone that's in need
Food for the hungry or some other kind deed

Remembering the happy times of Christmas past
The fondest of days that seemed to last and last
Spending times with family and old friends too
Sent down from Heaven just to be with me and you

So have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
As you go along your way spreading lots of cheer
Many special blessings sent to each and every one
The greatest gift given to all was in His only Son
