A Gift Surprising

I found a gift surprising in its depth of love.
I found a love amazing in its gift of hope.

A love that seeks the outcast
A love that humbles kings
A love that gave up glory
A love the angels sing.

This love is ever near us, yet sometimes it isn’t clear.
Ours are often clouded, by desires and by fears.

God’s love is truly gentle
God’s love is truly strong
His love is in our living
His love is in our song.

A love so freely given, but we can see the cost
When we look upon this child and see the shadow of the cross.

A love that’s not for one day,
One people or one land,
A love that’s known within us
As it’s flowing from our hand.

I found a gift surprising, in its depth of love.
I found a love amazing, in its gift of hope.
