We Three Kings

My sister, Anna, is staying with me for the holidays and God has been blessing us with amazing revelation of freedom, grace and intimacy with Him... And He has just filled us up with such joy-- we can't help, but laugh much of the time. One thing that has been making us laugh-- the three kings. Anna has been crafting and made these beautiful kings.

She insisted they need cloaks still. I agree, they are going to freeze without some sort of cloak to keep them warm on their journey to Jesus. So we wrote these new lyrics to an old song:

We three kings of Orient are;
Needing cloaks, it's cold where we are,
Field and fountain, colder mountain,
Traveling oh so far.

Oh, star of wonder, star so bright,
Star that leads us through cold nights,
Westward leading, still it's freezing,
Guide us in this snow so white.

We three Kings have come all this way;
Without cloaks, what more can we say?
Frost and blizzard, froze our gizzards
May it be warm today.

Oh star of wonder, star of hope,
Lead us to some nice warm cloaks,
In our wandering, so much pondering,
Might we meet some noble folk.

We three kings in Bethlehem town;
Met the king, spare cloaks all around,
Warm with laughter, still we're after,
Where this bright star shines down.

Oh star of wonder, star of joy,
We bring with us gifts not toys,
In a manger, not a stranger,
Lord we love your perfect boy.

Merry Christmas :D
