With great wonder they followed the star;
Though the journey would be very far.
Westward to Jerusalem they went;
From there to Bethlehem sent.
With hearts empowered by exceeding joy
Continued the search for the Holy Boy.
Finally, they reached the desired place;
And bowed before the Savior’s face.
Gold, Frankincense, Myrrh they offered Him;
This Christ Child born in Bethlehem.
Truly, this Child was their joy;
Not some gadget, trinket, or toy.
To have the heart of a wise man, see,
You too, must come and bow your knee.
