What present did Jesus give his friends?
A gift of Love that never ends.
Not confined to Christmas Day,
For, Lo, I’m with you, all the way.
God will supply your needs not wishes, –
Look what was done with the loaves and fishes:
Five thousand people and more were fed.
The gift of Love gave them their bread.
Many came who were blind and lame:
The response of the Lord was just the same.
“Rise up, be free! Sin no more!
Love one another, that’s the law.”
What present should we give our friends?
The gift of Love that never ends.
Not confined to Christmas Day
But for all time, in every way.
