Wise Men, Whom Do You Seek?


Facebook Twitter More...

A long time ago,
Some men who were wise
Were led to The Child,
His star in the skies.
They worshipped God’s Son,
Gave gifts they had brought,
This was the true King,
The one they had sought.

Wise men of today,
For whom do you seek?
Whose star will lead you?
Whose praise shall you speak?
What worth is wisdom,
If it cannot save?
What joy is wisdom,
That ends in the grave?

Wise men seek Jesus,
And search for His light,
Joy in His presence,
Glory in His sight.
Wisdom’s worth is Christ,
Our Saviour found!
Wisdom’s joy is Christ,
Risen from the ground!

“…and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.

When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary His mother, and fell down, and worshipped Him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto Him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.” ~ Matthew 2:9b-11
