The greatest gift of all . . .
isn’t found under the tree
nor wrapped in pretty paper
ribbons on it you won’t see.
It’s not very beautiful,
in fact, it’s even uncomely
it’s not deck-out or decorated
it’s actually rather homely.
It’s not seen on the mantle,
or inside an adorned stocking
in truth, it’s outward appearance
might even be to you shocking.
It’s not something you can buy,
or something you can give away
it’s not something people desire
most won’t give it the time of day.
The greatest gift of all,
is Jesus plain and clear
He is the Savior of the world
changing lives is His career.
Once you give your heart to Him,
His light will make you glow
and the closer you get to Jesus . . .
His inner beauty you’ll come to know!
“For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant,
and as a root out of a dry ground:
he hath no form nor comeliness;
and when we shall see him,
there is no beauty that we should desire him.”
