Precious Gift

Jesus Christ our precious Saviour
Born on earth in a humble manger
Coming down from heaven above
Bringing to us unconditional love.

Mary’s calling was like no other
Chosen by God to be Christ’s mother.
From heaven Jesus came, to live on earth,
A heavenly gift of a virgin birth.

This precious babe that Mary bore
We honour, worship, cherish, adore.
Radiant beams glow all around
Shining light on Holy ground.

Wise men from the east, at night,
Followed the star, an awesome sight,
Bringing presents, exotic and rare
Gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

They came to worship the Holy one,
Lord Jesus Christ, the heavenly son.
All bow in awe and adoration,
To the one who brings for us salvation.

This day we honour him once more,
Our dear Saviour, worship and adore,
He is the Holy one, setting us free,
Guiding our path, bringing liberty.

Trust and worship Him every day,
He will guide you along the way,
He is the way, the truth and the light,
Through Him we are accepted in God’s sight.

At Christmas, He brings us hope for all time,
Our heavenly Saviour so divine,
So come everyone, come praise and sing
To our Lord, and heavenly King.
