Hi momma03! The Gift is performed by Garth Brooks and was written by Stephanie Davis.

Here is a review from a music fan: ?I found Beyond the Season to be not only a great Christmas album, but another great country CD by one of the greatest artists of our time. My favorite song is "The Gift," bringing the true meaning of Christmas to us through the example of charity from a poor, lost child. It brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it.

The Gift by Garth Brooks ?A poor orphan girl named Maria Was walking to market one day She stopped for a rest by the roadside Where a bird with a broken wing lay A few moments passed till she saw it For it's feathers were covered with sand But soon clean and wrapped it was travelling In the warmth of Maria's small hand? (..) ?Now the Christmas Eve service was coming And the church shone with tinsel and light And all of the town folks brought presents To lay by the manager that night There were diamonds and incense and perfumes In packages fit for a king But for one ragged bird in a small cage Maria had nothing to bring She waited till just before midnight So no one would see her go in And crying she knelt by the manger For her gift was unworthy of Him?
