The Greatest Gift (Repost)

This is a lyrical poem I wrote years ago, but always revisit it each Christmas. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll recognize it. I have to share it one last time because, after all, this is what Christmas is all about. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas Everyone! Have a wonderful New Year as well 🙂

The Greatest Gift

One can’t bring anyone
Anything greater than this
There’s nothing in the world
That can surpass this gift
Beyond all the goodies
And the bliss this season gives
Nothing compares to…

The greatest gift
It’s more than one could wish
Oh the greatest gift
Greater than anything big or small
Is the son, who died for us all

One can’t compare the joy
This season is with this
There’s nothing in this world
That can surpass this gift
Above all the stars in the sky
Or reindeer that fly
Nothing compares to…

The greatest gift
It’s more than one could wish
Oh the greatest gift
Greater than anything big or small
Is the son, who died for us all

So this holiday season
Let’s count all the reasons
Why we will celebrate
Above all the presents
Beyond all the treats
I have one wish
That all may never forget
The greatest gift

The greatest gift
It’s more than one could wish
Oh the greatest gift
Greater than anything big or small
Is the son, who died for us all

  1. You are right about why we celebrate this time of year. Jesus Christ is the best gift Our Heavenly Father gave us. His only begotten son who died for us and his atonement saves us. I do agree with you Cyrstal.
