Preparing for Victory

The Eternal Gift


He did not use a silvery box
Or paper green and red.
God laid His Christmas Gift to men
Within a manger bed

No silken cord was used to bind
The Gift sent from above,
'Twas wrapped in swaddling cloths and bound
In cords of tender love.

There was no evergreen to which
His precious Gift was tied.
Upon a bare tree high on a hill
His Gift was hung....and died

'Twas taken down from off the tree
And in a grave was laid the precious Son of  God,
But death itself could not destroy
The precious Gift of God

With mighty hand He lifted Him
From out the stony grave
Forevermore for everyman
An eternal Gift He gave
