Advent Devotion: Who are the Wise Men? | Ep. 097

At Christmas, we hear about Gabriel and the angels and the shepherds, Joseph and Mary… and then we hear about the wise men. But who are the wise men? They don’t come to the manger where Jesus was born. They traveled from a long distance later, following a star, and looking for the king of the Jews. Looking for Jesus.

As with gladness men of old
Did the guiding star behold;
As with joy they hailed its light,
Leading onward, beaming bright;
So, most gracious Lord, may we
Evermore be led by Thee.

As with joyful steps they sped,
Savior, to Thy lowly bed,
There to bend the knee before
Thee, whom heav’n and earth adore;
So may we with willing feet
Ever seek Thy mercy seat.

As they offered gifts most rare
At Thy cradle, rude and bare,
So may we with holy joy,
Pure and free from sin’s alloy,
All our costliest treasures bring,
Christ, to Thee, our heav’nly King.

Verses 1, 2, and 3 of As With Gladness Men of Old
