VOYAGE OF THE STAR SEEKERS
( from "Logos of St Andrew" Winter 99)
Across the desert plains they came,
By wise men gifts were Borne,
From distant eastern lands of Fame,
They journeyed on forlorn.
They sought for news at Herod's throne,
But no such word was heard -
Of king or priest it was not known -
The STAR foretold Messiah's Birth!
The STAR stopped over Bethlehem,
A stable yard the Scene.
A manger held the precious One.
The cold, night air was keen.
The gifts of Frankincense and Myrrh
and Gold were offered then.
The stable yard was all Astir
With beasts, and Love and Men.
So strange in royal palace grand
No Christ child was revealed;
But then in Ramah's humble sand
The eastern kings had Kneeled.
The ages since are lost in Time,
But time no burdens cast
Upon the minds of all Mankind -
The STAR outshines the Past!
