"WHAT WILL YOU GIVE ME"

Thinking back on the years we've been sharing,
How our love was once tender and caring.
Darling, I felt then such warmth in my heart;
Could it be that in growing, we just grew apart?

Chorus 1
Tell me, what will you give me for Christmas?
I know what I'm needing today.
Of things I have plenty, you gave me so many.
Please give me love this Christmas day.

Sweetheart, the gift I desire
Is love that the years can never turn old.
It's just not for sale in department store windows,
A gift that's so priceless could never be sold.

Chorus 2
Tell me, what will you give me for Christmas?
I know what I'm needing today.
Of things I have plenty, but they leave me empty.
Give me your love this Christmas day.

Now I know how Christ feels at Christmas.
Where is the love that He wants on that day?
We give gifts and feast while He is forgotten,
But if we would listen, we might hear Him say:

Chorus 3
"Tell me, what will you give Me for Christmas?
I know what I'm needing today.
Good deeds you've done often,
But Me you've forgotten.
Please give your love this Christmas day."

Chorus 4
Jesus, what can I give You for Christmas?
Oh, what could You need anyway?
Good deeds I've done often,
But You I've forgotten.
I'll give You my love this Christmas day.
Jesus, what can I give you for Christmas?
I know what You're needing today.
Good deeds I've done often,
But You I've forgotten.
Please take my love this Christmas day.
