Merry Christmas - The Christmas Star





THE CHRISTMAS STAR
          by Janet F. Smart          

The wise men from the east

All traveled from afar,

To find the little babe

Beneath the Christmas star.



I wish I were that star

That went before the kings,

The star of Bethlehem

Of which the angels sing.



I wish I were that star,

The star that showed the way,

And led the kings to find

Our Savior where he lay.



I wish I were that star,

That told of Jesus’ birth.

             The star of awe and hope              

That glowed above the earth!



Merry Christmas everyone!

  8. I've heard many times "wish upon a star" but not what a star wishes for. Very pretty poem.
