The Gift

What gift have I this day?
What hope, what light?
What prayer to pray?
My cup is empty, my well is dry.
What gift have I to bring?

He came so lowly, hidden away.
This king, this babe,
In the manger laid.
My heart it aches, my soul it yearns.
What gift have I to bring?

The angels sang
The heavens drew near
i’ve come alone, i’ve come in fear
To chance a peak at this rare sight
What gift have I to bring?

I dropped my staff,
I bent my knee
The hope, the light, the majesty
Sheep, a goat all gathered round
What gift have I to bring?

I bowed my head, I stayed awake
My heart my soul no longer fake .
Now it’s i who run to tell the tale
It was the gift He had to bring.
