Wise Men Three


Wise men three

you came from afar

seeking a king

you followed a star.


I can’t help but wonder

why did you go

what really compelled you

to seek him so?


The perfumes you brought

fit for a king

you gave them away

to a small babe.


Did you understand

who he would become

did you even realize

who he really was?


Wise men three

you traveled so far

lighted by a star

falling on bended knee

you honored The

King of kings.


If wise men still seek Him

I wonder how far

we will go seeking

our One True Star?


At Christmastime

(or all year through)

will we go out of our way

to seek the Christ child anew?

How far will we go

to follow Your light?


The only present — our hearts

a perfume of worship to give

so precious, so perfect

our only true gift

presented on bended knee

in our quest of Him

just like the wise men three.

“Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.” When they heard the king, they departed; and behold, the star which they had seen 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 exceedingly great joy. And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.”  

Matthew 2:1-2 & 9-11
