"Unwrap the Gift"

Listen:

Hypnotized by what lies underneath the Christmas tree
Several gifts I bought with love are staring back at me
Judging of their worth by their shape, size and cost
Each one wrapped in colored paper soon to be ripped up and tossed

Sifting through the reasons why we give gifts away
leaves us so distracted from the truth of why we celebrate
I'm hoping that this year you'll find the gift I can not buy
Praying that you'll finally discover the treasure that gets easily pushed aside

Chorus
Unwrap the gift, God chose for you, His only Son sent by his love
His gift is free for the rich and the poor
There are no strings attached, nothing else you could ask for
Unwrap the gift...unwrap the gift

Feeling swept away by all the man-made commotion
Being overwhelmed by my divided devotion
Even though my heart possesses the best of intentions
I find another day has passed me by and I didn't even mention

Chorus
Unwrap the gift, God chose for you, His only Son sent by his love
His gift is free for the rich and the poor
There are no strings attached, nothing else you could ask for
Unwrap the gift...unwrap the gift

Bridge
One lone package still remains but it's not underneath the tree
In our carelessness we overlooked the best gift we could receive
