The star that shined from above so bright,
so long ago on that very special night.
Gave to three from afar hope for who they sought,
for the light of the world, gifts they brought.
Though for the one in power he was alarmed,
the wise ones left so our gift wouldn't be harmed.
He thought his throne this new one came to steal,
so in rage he sent out his men to find and kill.
Men were sitting out keeping watch in the field,
not knowing that soon their fate was sealed.
Seeing a light and hearing that song so grand,
they went to see the new ruler of their land.
With no rooms to be had throughout the town,
wrapping him in cloth - in straw they laid him down.
No one knew that night how great he would be,
but he turned out to be a savior for me.
