lyrics

(speaking)
Soon all throughout the land word spread
That Jesus Messiah had come
Bringing peace and healing to a broken world
Word of this reached far beyond Judea into the East
And among those who heard were three Wise Men
They had also seen the star
And came to welcome Jesus to the world.

(singing)
From the East there
There came Three Great Wise Men
They heard of Jesus
And so they came to worship him

They came from afar
Followed the star
Through deserts and darkness and daylight
They rode
They came bearing gifts
To give to their prince
Who’d be King of All Kings
By divine Ordinance
Gold and frankincense and mirth
they brought him
Gold and frankincense and Mirth
they offered at his feet

From the East there
There came Three Great Wise Men
They heard of Jesus
And so they came to worship him

Upon arriving they met
Herod, the King
Who saw their fine gifts
And treated them kindly
“Greetings my Wise men,
Come let us be friends.
What brings you so far
from the east to my lands?”

“Herod, Herod, you must have seen it
The star there hovering over Bethlehem!

We believe the Messiah
Has been born
As the prophets of old told us
Hallelujah!”

Wise men slow down now
I know you’re smart
And maybe your right
Then again maybe not
But it’s no matter.
Whom ever you meet
Beneath that star,
won’t you bring him to me?

(speaking)
Although Herod, too was a wise man,
The wise men were wiser men.
And they did not trust him.
They went to Jesus
and gave their gifts
and then went home
and told others that the Messiah lives.
