My Gift is You

Words and Music by Gary Powell

Woman-Verse 1
I love a gift wrapped in red, a gift under the tree
When the lights blink only for you and for me
But what I like most and what most rings true
Is the way I feel knowing that my gift is you.

Man
We sip the hot chocolate and we sing “Noel”
Whether first or the second Noel, we won’t tell
I know that I’m tardy and long overdue
In telling my true love that my gift is you

Both-Chorus 1
All that we hold in each other’s heart
Is the hope that each Christmas we won’t be apart
So, our stockings are hung and from my point of view
We’re here with each other, and my gift is you

Man-Verse 2
We hold in our hands what we love the most

Woman
We hold in our hearts where others just boast

Both
But what I like most and what most rings true
Is the way I feel knowing that my gift is you.

Both-Chorus 2
All that we hold in each other’s heart
Is the hope that each Christmas we won’t be apart
So, our stockings are hung and from my point of view
We’re here with each other, and my gift is you

Woman-Verse 3
I love a gift wrapped by you, a gift under the tree
When the snow falls lightly for you and for me
But what I like most and what most rings true
Is the way I feel knowing that my gift is you.

Man
We sip apple cider, we sing “Deck the Halls”
We’ve trimmed the tree now and even some of the walls
But you know I am here now and though overdue
I will tell you my true love that my gift is ….

Both-Chorus 3
All that we hold in each other’s heart
is the hope that each Christmas we won’t be apart
But what I like most and what most rings true
Is the way I feel knowing ….

Tag
This is the way…
The way I feel knowing that my gift
My gift, my gift is you

  1. This song is absolutely the finest Christmas song I have heard in a long time. The singers are perfect for it. How do I get a copy of the music?

  2. Tom, the sheet music has never been published for “My Gift is You.” I do appreciate your wonderful compliment and will pass it along to the singers. Unfortunately, it’s not likely that the sheet music will ever be published.

  3. This is a great song Mr. Powell. I hope it gets published. In the meantime is there anyway to get the chords? There are a few chords in the chorus that I am having a hard time picking out.

  4. This song is absolutely beautiful, and I’m so sad there’s not sheet music for it! This needs to be out there for the world.

  5. I first heard this song last week and I was sure it had to be something from Broadway! I fell in love with it!!!!

  6. Gary, it’s the most wonderful song of christmas. I had it once in a cassette. But now it could not be played again as the player of cassette has been extinct. How to have your CD for MY GIFT IS YOU ??
