Is This King?
What mother holds her infant son
and doesnít see a brand new king?
virginís babe appears upon
her lap, holy reign appearing.
Cuddled in her
sweet voice of angels start to ring,
light rays slicing
with news that only Heaven brings.
through desert far
Persian leaders of wisdom left
following paths of
that bright star,
to find some Romans in a rift.
A simple mother with
nursing a people far bereft,
hidden there in a caveís dark
discovers signs that must be kept.
On offering their gifts of
some frankincense, and precious myrrh (Matthew 2:11),
kings in winter cold,
stunned by this wee babyís Power!
