Anthem text
Jesus, gift of God,
here are gifts for you:
angels bring their song,
heavens bring their star;
magi, gold, and spice,
shepherds, joy and awe.
Jesus, alleluia!

Jesus, gift of God,
here are gifts for you:
earth gives you its cave,
animals their crib;
Marygives her strength,
Jseoph gives his care.
Jesus, alleluia!

Jesus, gift of God,
here are gifts for you:
We will breing our hearts,
bring the weight they bear,
lay their burdens down,
lift your easy yoke.
Jesus, alleluia!

-Richard Leach, 1993
(adapt. from a 5th cent. Orthodox hymn ascribed to St. Anatolius)
