Guided by Spirit and Star

Photobucket
 

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the East, and have come to worship him.”
 
Matthew 2:1-2, Revised Standard Version
 

Three wise ones journeyed,
guided by Spirit and star,
to worship the Child.

O where, O where has my poor babe gone?
Where, O where can he be?
He must be hungry and quite forlorn—
Where, O where can he be?
