THERE'S A SPECIAL GIFT THAT COMES FROM GOD, THAT NO ONE CAN DENY,
IT EXCEEDS THE VERY GIFT OF LIFE THAT’S GIVEN TO YOU AND I.

IT'S THE GIFT THAT HAS NO BOUNDARIES, LIMITS OR EXPECTATIONS,
IT'S THE GIFT WITHOUT CONDITIONS THAT CONJURE SPECULATION.

IT'S THE GIFT THAT KNEW THE HIDDEN PAIN THAT WE SO OFTEN HIDE,
IT'S THE GIFT THAT OFTEN LET US OUT WHEN DAD SAID STAY INSIDE.

IT'S THE GIFT THAT SMILED TO DISGUISE HER PAIN JUST TO COMFORT US,
IT'S THE GIFT THAT WALKED OUT IN THE RAIN TO GET US ON THE BUS.

IT'S THE GIFT THAT GAVE US SO MUCH JOY WHILE HOLDING BACK HER TEARS,
IT'S THE GIFT THAT KEPT OUR SECRETS SECRET THROUGHOUT THE PASSING YEARS.

IT'S THE GIFT THAT KEPT HER ON OUR SIDE, NO MATTER WHAT WAS HEARD,
IT'S THE GIFT THAT LETS US TALK TO HER WITHOUT A SPOKEN WORD.

IT'S THE GIFT THAT TAUGHT US HOW TO PRAY BEFORE WE SAID GOOD NIGHT,
IT'S THE GIFT THAT MADE US FEEL SECURE BY KEEPING ON THE LIGHTS.

IT'S THE GIFT THAT SMILED FROM WITHIN THE CROWD WHILE WE WERE UP ON STAGE,
IT'S THE GIFT THAT LETS US REMAIN A CHILD NO MATTER WHAT THE AGE.

IT'S THAT GIFT THAT KEEPS US THANKFUL FOR ALL THAT SHE HAS DONE,
FOR A MOTHER GIVES THAT KIND OF LOVE, THAT GOD GAVE THROUGH HIS SON.
