"They worshipped Him"—in breathless awe
The wise men knelt before Him;
They traveled far with gifts of gold,
Their purpose to adore Him.
They worshipped, for in Him they saw
The hope of all that's human;
The Son of God—the Son of Man—
The Scripture's great denouement!
"They worshipped Him"—Lord, make us wise
As once again this story
Is caroled to a needy world,
Lest blinded to His glory.
We miss the meaning of His birth
So occupied with giving,
With tinseled tree and mistletoe,
With merriment and living.
We fail to see the Gift of God,
Christ crucified—Christ risen;
And failing to discern His Cross
We miss the way to heaven!
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).
