Three wise men.

The Three Wise Men

        Three wise men, come from afar,
        Seeking the King whose herald"s a star!
        A new star in Pisces, a remarkable thing,
        Jupiter and Saturn in conjunction bring
        News of the coming of Messiah and King,
        Promised by prophets, by jews spread around,
        Wise men determined He shall be found,
        For honour is due, and shall be given
        To One who has His own star in heaven.

        A star of His own, of great glory telling,
        But the child is found in a most humble dwelling,
        In no king"s castle, in no prince"s robes,
        But laid in a manger in swaddling clothes.,
        All signs of a life with hardship afflicted
        Just as the prophets have all predicted,
        So praise, honour and gifts the wise men bring,
        Gold, frankincense and myrrh, fit for the King.

        Jesus it is whose star shines in the sky,
        Jesus the "Salvation Of God" from on high,
        Jesus of whom the old prophesies speak,
        Jesus for whom all wise men seek,
        So offer all praise, give honour and attend
        To Jesus, Our Saviour, Our God and Our Friend.
