Presenting an offering?
How many wise men made the journey
To gaze on the new-born king?
Three gifts were brought so we assume
Three Magi traveled far
Determined to reach their destination
Led by a brilliant star.
Maybe God had a reason
For omitting this minute detail.
Could it be that He was waiting
For something time alone would tell?
The number could only be tallied
In the future when all is done,
When at last every human bows the knee
In honor of God’s Son.
Then there will be an accurate count.
A total will be given.
There will be no disputing the record books
Of the accounting firm of heaven.
All who joined ranks with the wise men
Finally, will be clear.
They were those through the ages, longing for
The Bright Morning Star to appear!
