The Gift

The Gift
by Ray Boltz

For them there were no presents
Around the Christmas tree
No flashing lights unless you count
The lamp across the street
A fire in a barrel
No chimney and no roof
To most of them Santa Claus
Was the man who made the soup

In an alley was a mother
Two children by her side
Trying hard to keep the spark
Of true Christmas alive
She said we may not have some things
That other people do
But Christmas is for everyone
And we're God's children too

Oh and Jesus loves you
And so do I
Think about the baby and the star up in the sky
I don't think Santa's comin'
Cause he don't know where we live
But who needs Christmas presents
We already have the gift

Well early Christmas morning
While they were still asleep
I packed a box of food and clothes
And walked back to their street
Imagine my surprise when I saw presents all around
Blankets, toys and winter coats beside them on the ground
And the card I read from Santa said
Inside the three of you
The real heart of Christmas is still beating strong and true

Oh and Jesus loves you
And so do I
Think about the baby and the star up in the sky
Santa Claus is comin'
Cause he knows where real faith lives
But who needs Christmas presents
We already have the gift
Who needs Christmas presents
We already have the gift
