Redeemer Revealed



Tune: We Three Kings

('We three Kings of Orient are')

Matthew 2 v.1-12 parts

**********

Three called Kings, they wise men were then

Made their journey, travelling when

Christ-child's star in the east they saw

Come to worship, adore

 

Chorus

O here be the Epiphany

Christ revealed unto all, see

To the Jews and to the Gentiles

Here stay, contemplate a while

 

Bethlehem, though you little town

Now be of an endless renown

Chosen by God, in you be born

His Son, redemption morn - Chorus

 

Precious gifts to Christ they did give

Saviour, in whom all may now live

Gold, frankincense, myrrh presented

By star they to Him led - Chorus

 

Guide us Lord, that we too humbly

Present gifts and selves to you, see

Serving you in freedom, gladness

Desiring you us bless - Chorus

 

Bright your light, you Light of the world

At your Epiphany unfurled

Sharing with others your gospel

Light o'ercomes darkness all - Chorus

      I believe the only present (gift) the Lord wants is for us to mend our ways, and maybe with a hyme in our step, like your poetry.

            Thanks Neville. It's a bit late to wish 'Merry Christmas' at the end of this clip!
            You have gold as a present? Got any spare for me?! And - you a wise man?
