A Christmas Gift

A Christmas giftís a cherished prize
To heart and soul, to mind and eyes
For wrapped within a glistening bow
is grace from God thatís been bestowed

The love entwinded in paper wrap
so gently placed  upon your lap
is written in the eyes of one
whoís joy was wrought from Godís own Son

A little Childís grace unfurled
at Christmas time, enchants the world
And from a manger reaches far
beyond the space of earth and star

It fills the heart and stirs the soul
to recognize the wondrous whole
of earth and heaven, God and man
unveiled by Infantís tiny hand

The Glory of His Love departs
at Christmas time from loving hearts
Its wonder lit by candleís glow
and wrapped beneath a sparkling bow

Simply beautiful Liz!  My goodness, I'm sure to be reminded to start that Christmas shopping soon!  This was wonderful me twin ... through each and every rhythmic line.  Very much enjoyed!  

Best wishes and early Christmas hugs,
