The first Christmas gift

The first Christmas gift

SONG: In the midst of our Christmas cheer, we remember the first and greatest Christmas gift we have ever received.

The Child born in Bethlehem

Let the echoes from Bethlehem ring through your celebrations this Christmas, as you remember the Child born in Bethlehem and all that the “first Christmas gift” means for you. The greatest sign of God’s mighty love for mankind and the birth of a new and glorious hope.

Lyrics: The first Christmas gift

Winter days – waning light,
Now it’s dark, a cold December night.
Peace on earth is spreading far and near –
Glowing candles, warmth, and Christmas cheer.

’Round the glittering tree,
Gather friends and dear family.
Through the festive sounds we hear again
Echoes soft and clear from Bethlehem.

The very first Christmas gift –
There in Mary’s arms sweetly rests.
No fancy wrappings, no hint of glory, grand!
But this dear Child holds the world in His hand.

All that’s precious to me
Held within the Christmas mystery.
Through this helpless Child of lowly birth
God proclaimed His mighty love on earth.

The very first Christmas gift –
There in Mary’s arms sweetly rests.
No fancy wrappings, no hint of glory, grand!
But this dear Child holds the world in His hand.

The very first Christmas gift –
There in Mary’s arms sweetly rests.
This little Child who was sent to set me free
Created Christmas deep inside of me.
