Give of Yourself This Christmas
Are you out of money this Christmas?
Are you feeling discouraged and blue?
Cheer up, my friend, be happy
For there’s something you can do.
Give a gift that’s more important,
That money cannot buy,
The gift of love and caring
Is one you can supply.
Tell your children you love them,
Give then hugs and kisses galore
What gift could be more precious?
Certainly not one from a store.
Show your loves ones they’re important,
Encourage them day by day.
It’s not the things you give them,
It’s the encouraging, kind words you say.
Call a friend that’s lonely,
Always keep in touch,
Are just a few kind words
That could mean so very much.
Visit those that are sickly,
Offer a little prayer.
An expensive gift is nothing
Compared to being there.
Lend a helping hand
To a burdened soul today.
Your gift of help to them,
Will mean more than words can say.
Send a loving letter
To someone feeling blue.
To that dear one that’s lonely,
It’s a priceless gift from you.
There are many other precious gifts
That only you can give.
For God Himself gave them to you,
To give, each day you live.
