The Gift

Once upon a time they say
A child was born in a stable
Nowhere there to lay his head
But in a poor man’s cradle

Could they know that through the years
This story would be spoken
Till it reached around the world
A web of love unbroken

Now each year at Christmas time
We sing out, sing out in wonder
How the story still unfolds;
The precious gift of a child

Shepherds, kings and angels knew
That ‘Peace On Earth’ was the message
Sent with love for all to know
Throughout the Earth and the ages

Now each year at Christmas time
We sing out, sing out in wonder
How the story still unfolds;
The precious gift of a child

Once upon a time they say
A child was born in a stable
