The Three Kings

Over the desert,
Led by the Star,
Traveled three holy
Kings from afar.

Weary and long the
Way was for them,
Yet, with God's help, they
Reached Bethlehem.

There they found Jesus,
Lovely God-Child,
Mary and Joseph
Saintly and kind.

Here the three wise men
Humbly adored
Their heavenly King,
Savior and Lord.

Then their most precious
Gifts they unfold:
Myrrh and frankincense,
Purest of gold.

Offering all to
Jesus, whose love
Brought Him to earth from
Heaven above.
