Gifts of the Heart
by Elizabeth Searle Lamb

What have I to give?
Oh, I am rich with gifts
Ready for the giving:
The gift of joy
That lights a shadowed spot;
The gift of perceptive praise;
The gift of thanks, its value
Doubled when unexpected.
There is the gift of faith
Wrapped in action, perhaps,
Or ribboned with words,
Or hidden deep within a prayer.
There is the gift of love,
A gift which, in the giving,
Is the gift of myself.
Oh, I am rich with gifts
And am constantly made richer
By the giving.
