And didn't know of Mary's plight,
That to a babe she would give birth,
God's precious Son sent down to earth.
Wise men came from countries far
As in the East there was a star.
With frankincense and myrrh and gold
They came the Christ child to behold.
With joy rejoicing they bowed down
Before Him Who would wear a crown.
Once again may we bow down
And worship this King of renown.
"When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding
great joy. And when they came 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 2:10-11 KJV
