Two-part treble chorus and keyboard (organ or piano, or even harpsichord). Text by Richard Leach, adapted from a 5th-century Orthodox hymn attributed to St. Anatolius.  Sweet and tender, with a fun muzette (French bagpipe style!) accompaniment.

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.
Mary gives her strength,
Joseph gives his care.
Jesus, alleluia!

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