Oak Ridge Boys, The - First Christmas Gift Lyrics




God rest ye merry gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ our Savior
Was born on Christmas day
To save us all from Satan's pow'r
When we were gone astray
O tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

Christmas was a present from God on high
A Child was born so that man wouldn't die
He gave His Son so that we might live
Jesus was the very first Christmas Gift

Wrapped in swaddling clothes He lay
Ribbon of light around His head they say
High in the Heavens a star was lit
For Jesus was the very first Christmas Gift

Shepherds as well as kings did come
To look down upon the Holy One
Angels rejoiced and the world was blessed
With Jesus the very first Christmas Gift

Since then we dread and shop and fret
And spend a fortune over it
Greed shows up in kids and grown ups
Worrying about what we're gonna get

When all it takes is a prayer of thanks
To God for the very first Christmas Gift
