The Greatest Gift by Chris South


          The Greatest Gift

What does Christmas mean to you

What has this holiday become?

A time of toys

For girls and boys

And endless bills for dad and mum?

 

Let’s put Christ back into Christmas

Without Him it just wouldn’t be

The Infant born in a stable

God gave to you and me!

 

What does Christmas mean to you

Whose purpose does it serve?

A time to shop

Until you drop

And buy what you’re told you deserve?

 

Let’s put Christ back into Christmas

Without Him it just wouldn’t be

The Son of God incarnate

Who came to set us free!

 

What does Christmas mean to you

What is this season all about?

A time to indulge

That yuletide bulge

And then let it all hang out?

 

Let’s put Christ back into Christmas

Without Him it just wouldn’t be

The Saviour who atoned for sin

When He hung on Calvary!

 

What does Christmas mean to you

Who is it you adore?

Does Santa Claus

Deserve the applause

For giving you more and more?

 

Let’s put Christ back into Christmas

Without Him it just wouldn’t be

The Messiah who conquered death and hell

And rose in victory!

 

What does Christmas mean to you

Why is it you remember?

With festive cheer

This time each year

The 25th day of December?

 

So let’s not forget this Christmas

The reason why we give

For Jesus Christ was given to men

And died so we might live.

 

So let’s not forget each Christmas

Christ, crucified for you and me

The Greatest Gift God ever gave

His only Son, He sent to save

Who bore our sins and burst the grave

And reigns eternally!
