THE GIFT OF LOVE (Rita MacNeil (m & l) ) Lyrics as released by Rita MacNeil 1993 ‘Once Upon A Christmas’. A village of great hope and childhood dreams There wasn’t a Christmas I didn’t see You struggled with hard times, it just shouldn’t be And love was the greatest gift by the tree. A day to remember from all the rest There wasn’t a moment that I would regret You squandered a fortune on hard work and love There wasn’t a corner where you didn’t shine. Now Christmas is coming and you’re growin’ old You were the first one who taught me to love Tonight by the fire, the tree dressed in lights You’re still a candle that burns in my life. I’ll hope I’ll be able to share as you have Gifts without ribbons whenever I can To know in the mornin’, there by the tree The same gift you gave me when I was a kid. Now Christmas is coming and you’re growin’ old You were the first one who taught me to love Tonight by the fire, the tree dressed in lights You’re still a candle that burns in my life. Now Christmas is coming and you’re growin’ old You were the first one who taught me to love Tonight by the fire, the tree dressed in lights You’re still a candle that burns in my life… You’re still a candle that burns in my life.
