A Gift of Holiday Songs

A gift of song


Music, especially singing, is a big part of my life. For twenty years, I’ve sung with a small vocal jazz ensemble, The High Seas. We haven’t rehearsed or performed since March, but we recorded some of our favorite holiday songs last year. I hope you enjoy this gift of holiday songs from The High Seas.

Lyrics, A Gift of Song, by Mason Williams

Mason Williams, guitarist extraordinaire, may be best known for his hit Classical Gas, but A Gift of Song is another favorite.  Here are the heartfelt lyrics. I found the recording on iTunes. You can probably find it on other online music resources as well.

A gift of song is a gift of love
Though how this is I cannot say
But who receives a gift of love
Must send it freely on its way

As I receive, so let me give
And live in joy, my whole life through
A gift of song is a gift of love
Here comes a gift of love for you

A gift of song is a gift of love
It falls to Earth, we know not where
But who receives a gift of love
It follows then that he must share

As I receive, so let me give
And live in joy, my whole life through
