The Jesus Gift

Shall I gather emeralds? Shall I bring him gold?
Shall I gather diamonds? White hard? Bright cold?
Shall I spangle jewels like stars above?

-Give him laughter
Simple warm laughter
Offer him warm laughter and love-

Shall we gather emeralds? Shall we bring him gold?
Shall we gather diamonds? White hard? Bright cold?
Shall we spangle jewels like stars above?

-Give him laughter
Simple warm laughter
Offer him warm laughter and love-

--Simplest of gifts; gentlest of hearts
Kindness he'll use as he leads
So, give him these gifts; hand him your hearts--

Honour his birth and you'll need no:

Emeralds nor rubies. Silver nor gold
Neither bright diamonds, white hard, bright cold
Spangle not rich jewels like stars above

-Give him laughter
Sweet, peace-filled laughter
Offer him warm laughter and love-

jesurest.htm Jesus, Jesus Rest Your Head

Jesus, Jesus, rest your head.
You have got a manger bed.
All the evil folk on earth
Sleep in feathers at their birth.
Jesus, Jesus, rest your head.
You have got a manger bed.
Have you heard about our Jesus?
Have you heard about his fate?
How his mother went to the stable
On that Christmas Eve so late?

Winds were blowing, cows were lowing,
Stars were glowing, glowing, glowing.
Jesus, Jesus, rest your head.
You have got a manger bed.
To the manger came the Wise Men.
Bringing gifts so rich and rare,
To the father and the mother,
And the blessed infant there.

Shepherds left their fields and flocks
And sat beside the ass and ox.
Jesus, Jesus, rest your head.
You have got a manger bed.
