Receiving His Gift
|God’s gift to the world when Jesus was born is ours to enjoy all year long.
Each day can be brightened with peace and good will as the angels proclaimed in their song.
Worried souls can be calmed, broken hearts can be healed if we listen and truly believe
We receive His gift fully by doing His will. It’s not ours if we simply admire.
Does someone have burdens I might help to lift or tears I could help cease to flow
I’m already busy, of course; aren’t we all? Our schedules we needn’t belabor.
So why should I worry about other people? I’ve got such a big load to pull.
In serving your fellows, you’re serving your Lord. As you have done unto the least,
So come unto God as you give of yourself, and thereby you are storing up treasure
Don’t tackle the world. Start small, close to home. And gradually you’ll come to know
