Lyrics : Song Of The Magi
I am a Magi, a king from the east
I study the stars in the heavens, from the greatest to least
Because signs in the heavens speak of things upon the earth
And I remember when the star appeared that hailed the new King’s birth
 
I said to the other Magi standing there with me
Let us go and find this King, whose star we now can see
Weeks and months we traveled, as the star before us went
And when we came to Jerusalem, we asked everyone we met
 
Chorus:
Where is He who’s been born King of the Jews?
We have seen His star, and followed it to you
We have come to worship Him, have you any news
Where is He who’s been born King of the Jews?
 
We were taken to Herod, for he wanted to hear
When exactly we had seen this new star appear
Then he sent us Bethlehem, of whom the prophets tell
He told us to go and find child, so he could worship Him as well.
 
We found Him with His mother, there in Bethlehem
We opened up our treasures, and knelt to worship Him
Gold, frankincense and myrrh, we placed there at His feet
We knew we had found the One, our journey was complete.
 
Chorus:
This is He who’s been born King of the Jews 
We have seen His star, and followed it to you
We have come to worship Him, and we will spread the news
This is He who’s been born King of the Jews. 
 
That night while I was sleeping an angel came to me
He said don’t return to Herod, he’s not all that he seems
He’s jealous, and deceitful, he wants to kill the boy
So we left for home a different way, but our hearts were full of joy.
 
Chorus:
This is He who was born King of the Jews 
We have seen His star, and now we’re telling you
Let all creation worship Him, everybody spread the news
This is He who was born King of the Jews
