The Gift is given. At the appointed Nanosecond, He was sent. Deity wore flesh, The Owner of all With nowhere To lay His head, The Only Begotten Birthed where beasts were kept, Welcomed by shepherds, Oh, see what it took To reclaim us all. The Gift is given. Nothing is withheld. In this one small child, Love Himself spoke The final Word.
