There is no offering nor payment to see,
It is something you must give away free.
Some people ask, “What’s in it for me?”
“I’m not giving away anything for free!”
It’s a gift reserved for a few but not many.
The ones who have it seem to give plenty.
You can't buy this gift or find it anywhere,
Some try to give but they really don’t care.
Did you meet anyone and knew right away,
They are different from others in every way.
Do you wonder, "What is it in them I see?"
"Why did you have such an impact on me?"
Once you really look at them you will know,
Suddenly their gift of giving soon will show.
A nice smile will break out across their face,
Those doubts you had gone without a trace.
They really do know the true gift of giving,
And sincerely want to help all of the living.
These wonderful people who give so much,
The countless lives they reach out to touch.
Don't ask, "What is this going to cost me?"
Nothing you see, the gift of giving is free.
