My Gift for You

My gift for you this Christmas
Does not fit in my hand.
It doesn't have bright wrappings.
I just want you to understand.

The best thing I can give you '
Is to offer you my Lord.
That you may come to know Him
As written in His Word.

To me He is so precious,
And therefore I would share,
So you'll want to accept Him;
This is my earnest prayer.

This gift will never wear out,
Nor will it tarnished be.
He'll be your everlasting Friend
As He has been to me.
