This is used in many churches as a congregational song ("hymn")... in Unity churches and some other denominations too.


The Greatest Gift

The greatest gift is love,
There is no finer gift on earth.
If we will give our love,
Then we have found our worth.

1. God gives me the rain.
God gives me the stars above.
God gives me the sun.
God gives me you to love.

2. Life shows me its joy.
Life shows me its rises and falls.
Life shows me its pain.
Life is for loving it all.

3. Love teaches me peace.
Love teaches me how to give.
Love teaches me thanks.
Love is God's way to live.
