Once Upon a Time

High, in the Heavens,
A star, brightly shining:
Guiding, on camels,
Three wise men, a’riding.

Lo! In the stable,
A babe, gently sleeping;
The shepherds on hillside,
Their watch, ever keeping.

Soon, wise-men and shepherds,
Each, to other, a stranger,
Kneel down and worship
God’s son in THAT manger.
