Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh by Raymond A. Foss

The life, the fulfillment, the prophecy of old
his life, his ministry, his burial in the tomb
woven into the gifts, the three, the wise men
the gold, frankincense, and myrrh at his bed
the king, the priest, the martyr on the cross
living humbly, teaching another way, dying for our sins
the word, the living, the risen Lord
shoot of Jesse, carpenter’s son, God incarnate
at the beginning, Emmanuel, judge at his return
The bread, the lamb, the way
To him, for him, for us all throughout time
was given, the gold, the frankincense, and myrrh
by the wise men, traveling from the east, to his bed

Isaiah 60:1-6
Matthew 2:1-12
