Lyrics

Persons are gifts of God to me
That come all wrapped so differently.
Some so loosely, others so tightly;
But wrappings are not the gifts

I am a gift from God to me,
Do I accept the gift I see
I am a person, and for this reason,
A wonderful gift of love.

Am I a gift to others too,
Willingly given for you and you.
We are all persons, we are all gifts.
So let's make a grand exchange of gifts.
