So why would the meaning to this song be so hidden? The Church of England had outlawed the practice of the Catholic Church between 1558-1829 when the English parliament lifted the ban. It was during that time that this song was written to teach what they believed without being killed for it.
So over the next couple weeks we will look at one day at a time and examine what that meaning is for that day. Let's start with who is the true love spoken about in the song giving the gifts. The True Love is God Himself and He has not only given just these gifts, He continuously gives us gifts. This is shown in John 3:16 & 17, share what you have found about you True Love in these verses.
