A Gift For All

Written by Elton Smith and Larry Holder

Just in time for Christmas 1997. I wrote the music and Larry wrote the lyrics. Merry Christmas everyone! Visit Larry's popular web site for more original music. - Elton December 22, 1997

In December 2010, Jami sent a wonderful instrumental version of our song you can use as an accompaniment track. He also wrote a Christmas song about Orison the Polar Bear. Check out his songs.


(Verse 1)
See the people as they rush all around;
Every store in the town
selling toys to go under the tree.
Every corner has a red-suited man
with a bell in his hand,
And the sights are something to see...

But beneath all the noise,
they can find the true meaning of Christmas:
Jesus came to the earth, a gift from heaven above.
Far beyond all the toys,
they can find the true meaning of Christmas:
Jesus came to the earth, with forgiveness and love.
As a gift for all!

(Verse 2)
See the families as they all gather near,
Full of holiday cheer,
as the lights flash bright red and green.
Turkey, dressing, and some fresh apple pie
put a gleam in your eye,
It's more fun than you've ever seen...

But beneath all the noise,
we can find the true meaning of Christmas:
Jesus came to the earth, a gift from heaven above.
Far beyond all the toys,
we can find the true meaning of Christmas:
Jesus came to the earth, with forgiveness and love.
As a gift for all!

(Instrumental Chorus)
Come, let me tell you of the One
From heaven above
Came as a humble child to Bethlehem;
Thanks be unto Him!
Tell of the One
From heaven above
Came to show Truth and Love in every way,
Turn our darkness into Day;
That's what Christmas truly means to me!

Diane2007-12-11What an amazing message! So many call this holiday X-mas, taking Christ out of Christmas, but the whole reason for the season is CHRIST! Without Christ, no one would be given the gift of life after death. Since Jesus came to earth, he died for our sins. No sinner deserves heaven. Jesus, who never sinned, came to earth. He was spit on, mocked, and hanged to a cross so we could have a way to get to heaven. Jesus made a way for me through his shed blood and resurrection from the dead.
The Bible says that anyone, no matter how vile, can receive His salvation. It also says that everyone, no matter how good, needs salvation. Knowing this, I told God I was sorry for my sins. I understood that Jesus was the only way for me to get to heaven. I asked Jesus to come into my heart. He did. I'm saved, and I know for sure I will be in heaven when I close my eyes in death.
Without Christ, there is no Christmas.
He is the true reason for Christmas.
Barry Dean2007-11-30Thank you for this song. I have a bunch of home shchooled kids who sing it along with other songs for assisted living facilities residents.
2007-11-12Lovely! I'm always looking for fresh new songs for Christmas. Although the old ones are lovely too, it gets a bit boring listening to the same old songs every year. Thank you
2007-08-23The songs are very nice to hear...
