(verse)
Both of his parents were beyond dirt poor when he joined the world on a Tuesday.
He wasn't empty-handed, he brought with him a blessing.
When Doc Morgan said something was wrong, that moment in time was frozen,
With facial features so different, their baby was among the chosen,
Who taught about?

(chorus)
The gifts we get from God,
The precious gift of the kind word,
The joy of the gentle touch of love,
The gifts we get from God.

(verse)
Enduring ignorance from some would only last his lifetime.
There's tell of kingdom come, but there is some heaven here on Earth.
Some find their feelings running pure from the challenged and those with needs.
Lord, thanks for helping us endure by sowing your seeds,
That become?

(chorus)
The gifts we get from God,
The precious gift of the kind word,
The innocent joy of the gentle touch of love,
The gifts we get from God.

(bridge)
Hey, thank you, God, for this child's great lesson,
'Cause all the things that we've been professin' to want,
Can't be had up above,
Except the one gift that costs the least and is worth the most,
Thank you God for love.

(chorus)
The gifts we get from God,
The precious gift of the kind word,
The innocent joy of the gentle touch of love,
The gifts we get from God,
The precious gift of the kind word,
The innocent joy of the gentle touch of love,
The gifts we get from God.

(outro)
The gifts can come in many forms,
They can heal those who ail and make the cold warm?(vamp and out).
