Come the Wise Men


Scripture

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him.” – Matthew 2:1-2 (NASV)


The Lyrics

Come the wise men from afar
From the east they saw a star
God’s Word had made it clear
At the time this star appears

A Child shall be born in Bethlehem
A king that would save us from all our sin
So at His birth, sing ‘Peace on Earth,
Goodwill toward every man,
Goodwill toward every man’

Bearing gifts they came it’s told
Frankincense and myrrh and gold
This tiny one to meet
And lay them at His feet

This Child that was born in Bethlehem
This king that would save us from all our sin
So at His birth, sing ‘Peace on Earth,
Goodwill toward every man,
Goodwill toward every man’

The gifts they brought were rare
And so they laid them there
But the finest they did bring
Was worship as the King

This Child that was born in Bethlehem
This king that would save us from all our sin
So at His birth, sing ‘Peace on Earth,
Goodwill toward every man,
Goodwill toward every man,
Goodwill toward every man’
