They came from near, they came from far,
Following a distant star to where He lay, 
Not being sure of what it meant, but 
Knowing it was heaven sent,
They made their way,

And the creatures gathered 'round 
And didn't make a sound,
And the angels cried.

The angels knew what was to come,
The reason God had sent His son 
From up above.
It filled their hearts with joy to see, and 
Knowing of His destiny, 
Came tears of love.

I've often thought about that night 
And wondered if they realized 
That star so bright 
Was sent to tell all the land 
The Son of God would soon become 
The Son of Man.
