12 Days of Christmas Version 2

With each present we’ve included A scripture for the day.

We think we’ve been real clever

So look them up, now don’t delay.
With each present we’ve attached

A scripture as a clue.

So look them up, and try to guess

What’s wrapped inside for you.

We hope you like the things we’ve sent

And think we are real clever.

Because we want to wish for you

The Merriest Christmas ever!
