1 Corinthians 7:7 says, “For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.”


The gifts of God are much like ours, they come in every shape and size;

Sometimes they flap, sometimes they snap, sometimes they even tie.

The gifts of God are different though, sometimes they’re not even wrapped;

Sometimes the best gifts given can sit upon our laps.

The best gift God has given has cost Him everything;

The gift of our salvation was ours for the taking.

I find earthly gifts most special, are people sent my way;

They are gifts that keep on giving as we live each day by day.

The Mother and the Father, that God had given me;

Helped mold me and to make me who I turned out to be.

The wife that God has given me has helped make me complete;

She’s there when I fall down to help me to my feet.

The daughter God has given me has helped breathe life in me;

Every day with I have with her is a gift to me you see.

The friends that God has given me are the best a man could share;

And that explains as best I can why God’s gifts are so rare.
