The Most Perfect Gift

The most perfect gift that's ever been given,
Came from God's righteous hand in Heaven;
He sent His only Son to die on Calvary's cross,
Purchasing salvation, so no one would be lost!

The most perfect gift that man has ever seen,
Is the Saviour who came, our soul to redeem;
He came down to us, by way of a virgin birth,
The most awesome miracle seen upon earth!

The most perfect gift that our life can receive,
Is our Redeemer, in whom we trust & believe;
His blood erases our sin & reservation in Hell,
Providing eternal life, making all things well!

The most perfect gift we'll ever know at all,
Is the Christ of Christmas, who started it all;
Without Him, we'd have no holiday season,
God sent His Son to us for that very reason!

Out in the fields, an angel of the Lord appeared to the
shepherds who were tending their flocks of sheep by night. The angel
announced that the Savior had been born in the town of David.
Suddenly a great host of heavenly beings appeared with the angels
and began singing praises to God. As the angelic beings departed, the
shepherds decided to travel to Bethlehem and see the Christ-child.
There they found Mary, Joseph and the baby, in the stable. After their
 they began to spread the word about this amazing child and everything the angel
had said about him.  They went on their way still praising and glorifying God.
But Mary kept quiet, treasuring their words and pondering them in her heart.
It must have been beyond her ability to grasp, that sleeping in her arms—the tender child
she had just borne—was the Savior of the world
Matthew 1:21
"And she will bear a Son; and you shall call
His name Jesus, for it is He who will save
His people from their sins."
