To give a gift in obligation,
Will not make sure relationship.
No legalistic desecration,
In showing love by giving gifts.
The offering of grain containing,
These: frankincense, and grain, and oil,
Memorial of praise displaying,
And brought to God in sweat and toil.
For God His people still remembers,
And gives them bread born from the land,
Both Holy Spirit – oil tender,
And Bread of Life to save the damned.
And we remember God in prayer,
Like frankincense the incense burn.
Diverse from other nations layered,
And every tribe His praise will learn.
Then trip your memory with giving,
Returning that which God gave you.
To help His workers make a living,
A holy gift – your pride eschew.
And God gave us imagination,
So give with creativity.
For He has raised from every nation,
Both fried and baked diversity.
