Three Wise Men


He was born in a barn in the still of the night
One star shining ever so bright
No crib for his bed, straw lay his head
Three wise men they saw the light

Born into the world
The love of every boy and girl
Every woman and every man
Would know love from the touch of his hand

Three wise men
Carrying gifts from so afar
Came with their love as they saw above
And followed that night that star

When they saw this child
And in his dreams his first smile
They knew that night beneath holy light
A King was born that night

When they saw his face
They knew the world a different place
From the heavens a child was born
And would forever walk in his grace

Asleep in a manger in the calm of the night
Born into the world beneath holy light
A King of Kings was born
In the calm of a clear still night.

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen
(Sure no Minister ever looked wiser),
And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
