Pause for Poetry The Perfect Present

Welcome to Pause for Poetry featuring a poem written by my writer-friend, Frances Gregory Pasch.

The Perfect Present

by Frances Gregory Pasch

To find the perfect present
Do you rush from place to place?
Do you feel time is against you
As you run the shopping race?

You’ll never find the perfect gift
In any store or mall,
Christ already purchased it,
And it is free…for all.

He paid the price at Calvary
When He died in our place.
He took our sins upon Himself…
Redeemed us by His grace.

What better time than Christmas
To give Him thanks and praise.
Let’s worship and adore Him
As at the cross we gaze.
