What Can I Give to the King

So I join the ranks of sharing a song...

Today is Christmas Eve... full of the excitement... and anticipation of Christmas morning. Under the Christmas Tree is full and running over with gifts for the ones we love the most on this earth. Family is sooo precious and the time that we get to spend together is priceless.

But this is the song on my lips today...one that my children sang in a musical when they were little. It has always been a favorite of mine....so I share it today (if I can remember all the words)... and want you to respond with more answers to the question that is posed in the song...

What can I give to the King?
Give to the One who has everything?
What can I give?
What gift can I bring?
What can I give to the King?
What can I give to the King?

Give Him a heart that's opened up wide...
Give Him a life that's got nothing to hide...
Give Him a love that's faithful and true...
and He'll give it all back to you!

What can I give to the King?
Give to the One who has everything?
What can I give?
What gift can I bring?
What can I give to the King?
What can I give to the King?



Think about it... what is your gift to the King?
Does he have your heart...fully?
Do you live your life with nothing to hide (not that you can hide anything from Him anyway)?
Do you really love Him more than anything?

My prayer for me and for you too...
is that this year we will desire Him more than anything this world has to offer. That we will give him every part of our lives.

Now this is not my New Year's post...
Just today and tomorrow...
ponder...
What will we give to our King?

I sang this song at my 6th grade Christmas concert. Never heard it since.... it's lovely to know someone else knows such a beautiful song?
