He did not use a silvery box
Or paper green or red.
God laid His Christmas Gift to men
Within a manger bed.

No silken cord was used to bind
The Gift sent from above.
'Twas wrapped in swaddling clothes
Bound in cords of tender love.

There was no evergreen to which
His precious Gift was tied.
Upon a bare tree on a hill
His Gift was hung...and died.

'Twas taken down from off the tree
And laid beneath the sod.
But death itself could not destroy
The precious Gift of God.

With mighty hand He lifted Him
From out the stony grave.
Forevermore for everyman
A living Gift He gave.
