MY GIFT TO YOU THIS CHRISTMAS

Verse # 1
It’s nearly Christmas, I’m crusin’ a stormy parking lot,
Horns are blarin’, tempers flarin’, Tryin’ to find a parking spot,
The mall is frantic, they’re all panicked, they’re not stoppin’ ‘till they’re droppin’
It’s the season that’s the reason, last minute Christmas shoppin’
This place reminds me of a zoo,
It makes me so glad I already know what I’m gettin’ you

Chorus
My gift to you this Christmas was extremely hard to find,
The stores were all sold (fresh) (clean) out of hope and joy and peace of mind,
So I had to special order , a custom-made design,
My gift to you this Christmas is indescribably (undeniably) divine,

Verse # 2
It’s Christmas Eve now, the gifts are wrapped and underneath the tree,
The kids are passed out, and at last now, we’re all alone just you and me,
It’s been a good year, we’ve had good cheer, just a few lows, but we got through those,
And the next one’s still a question, what it holds nobody knows,
But whatever it brings I know you’ll get through,
As long as you always hold on to the gift that I’m given’ you,

Repeat Chorus

Verse # 3
It’s Christmas mornin’, smiles on every sleepy face,
Coffee’s pourin’, flames are roarin’, inside of that smoky fireplace,
The kids are excited, they’re delighted, so many play things Christmas day brings,
There’s just your gift left to open, it’s priceless, I ain’t jokin’,
It’s second-hand, it’s brand spankin’ new,
And it’s the best gift that anyone ever has given you,

Last Chorus
My gift to you this Christmas was extremely hard to find,
The stores were all fresh out of hope & joy & peace of mind,
It was incredibly expensive, fact it cost a man His life,
My gift to you this Christmas is eternal life through the blood of and the love of Jesus Christ,
