And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshiped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

GIFTS OF THE MAGI
The Magi came by following a star
To pay their homage to the King of Kings,
For it was worth their traveling so far
To meet the Lord of Lords and what He brings.
They opened up their treasures and withdrew
Some frankincense and myrrh and precious gold,
These gifts they gave to baby Jesus true
As symbols of the mission He’d uphold.
The gold paid homage to His royalty;
The frankincense for His divinity;
The myrrh to signify humanity:
A King, a God, a sacrifice was He.
The Son of God was born so He could die,
Atonement for our sins…
