Statement of Faith

The gift you gave to me,
You gave some time ago;
Not waiting until Christmas Day
To let your friendship show.

The gift you gave to me,
That's dearest to my heart,
Was never bought, nor paid for;
Not purchased at a mart.

The gift you gave to me
(Not bought at any store)
Was just a simple hug that said
You felt the pain I bore.

The gift you gave to me
Can't be placed beneath the tree;
It's the love of a Christian friend,
A most precious gift indeed.

1996 J M McIntosh

Every good and every perfect gift is 
from above, and comes down from 
the Father of lights, with whom there 
is no variation or shadow of turning.
(James 1:17)
