How Precious That You Are!

How Precious That You Are (tune of Sunshine On My Shoulders)

 

Jesus is God’s gift to us at Christmas.

Jesus came to us to bring God’s best.

As we celebrate this time called Christmas,

We pray the earth will know His peace and rest.

 

If God had a gift that He could give you

To let you know how precious that you are

He’d leave His home to come here as a Baby Boy

And celebrate with His own Christmas star.

 

Christmas as a child could make me happy.

Christmas as a man can make me cry.

Christmas through the years just grows more lovely.

Jesus came to us from God on high.

 

Shepherds in the field their watch were keeping,

Another night, their only bed the ground.

But, angels came and took all thought of sleeping;

The best gift of the ages they had found.

 

Wise men from the east a CURE were seeking

To mend the broken hearts of men on earth.

Bringing precious gifts they came and found Him

But did they know how much His gift was worth?

 

An old man in the temple courts was waiting.

God’s promised One would come before he died.

He held God’s gift, this tender Child, in fragile hands.

This Baby made his heart so glad, he cried.

 

Jesus is God’s gift to us at Christmas.

Jesus came to earth to bring God’s best.

As we celebrate this time called Christmas,

We pray His peace will bring this whole world rest.

 

If God had a gift that He could give you

To let you know how precious that you are,

He’d leave His home to come here as a Baby Boy

And decorate with His own Christmas star.
