1st person and 1st wise man

 

“Tell me now, you three wise men,

      Have you travelled far?”

“Oh yes, we’ve travelled many days

       Following that star.”

 

2nd wise man

 

“We’ve travelled over desert sand

      By night and by the day.

We want to get to Bethlehem.

     Are we going the right way?”

 

3rd wise man

 

“There’s a reason why we’re going there:

       We’ve gifts we must bestow.

A babe’s been born in Bethlehem -

      God’s son, we’ll have you know.”

 

2nd Person

 

“Well, travel on along this road -

      The town lies straight ahead -

And in a stable you will find

      The baby in his bed.”

 

1st Narrator

 

The three wise men and camels

      Went quickly on their way,

But angels came to warn them  

     To return another way

 

1st and 2nd Angel

 

“King Herod is a jealous man

     And Jesus he’ll destroy.”

“Go back along another route.

     Say nothing of this boy.”

 

2nd Narrator

 

When they arrived in Bethlehem

    They found where Jesus lay.

And after leaving precious gifts,

      Returned a different way.
