Original text and translations

English.png English text

Some may have costly gifts,
Some no gift at all.
But Jesus our Saviour
Comes to us all.

When kings from far brought gifts
On him bestowing.
Off'rings the humble brought
Had as fair shewing.

Poor is the gift I bring
Yet hath it merit,
Sign of the Gift of gifts,
Which all inherit

The Gift of gifts.
