The Greatest Gift

by Ron Hamilton

If I search thru the pages of history,
Look thru the halls of time,
Seeking for the greatest gift of all,
A gift to all mankind,
I would stop at a manger in Bethlehem;
Kneel in wonder there.
See a tiny present wrapped in love,
A gift beyond compare.
Oh, the greatest gift,
Oh, the greatest gift of all,
Sent from a loving Father
In the form of a child so small,
All the wealth of heaven's splendor,
Wrapped up in a child so tender-
Oh, the greatest gift in all the world is Jesus!

If I look for the gift that reigns supreme
Above the hills of time,
A gift to fulfill each prophet's dream,
The highest gift sublime,
If I ask every angel in Paradise,
"Where can it be found?"
Heaven's mighty host would start to swell,
Till earth and sky resound.
Oh, the greatest gift,
Oh, the greatest gift of all,
Sent by a loving Father
In the form of a child so small,
All the wealth of heaven's splendor,
Wrapped up in a child so tender-
Oh, the greatest gift in all the world is Jesus!
