Scriptural advent calendar 2016 – December 22

Matthew 2:7-10

Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, inquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.

 And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.

 When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.

 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

WiseMenSeekHimStill

We are all just travelers on this journey called life;
Some walk in darkness, while others follow a light.
We carry our treasures so close to our heart;
Some we let go of while others never part.
And somewhere on this journey we encounter a King
That will change us forever, to Him our treasures bring.

(Chorus)
And wise men still seek Him, they follow a star
That leads them to Jesus as travelers a far.
Men of great nations and the poor of the earth
All join together to proclaim Christ’s birth.

(Verse 2)
Sometimes we find ourselves with no room at the inn
Filled with hopes and dreams, none of them with Him.
Walk along a winding road, and can’t find our way;
Look to the Heavens a star as bright as day.
And somehow He finds Himself in the hardest of hearts,
Whispers I love you, never more to part.

(Repeat Chorus)
And wise men still seek Him, they follow a star
That leads them to Jesus as travelers a far.
Men of great nations and the poor of the earth
All join together to proclaim Christ’s birth.

(Bridge)
Star of Bethlehem shine tonight
And lead us and guide us to His perfect light.
Oh come Lord Jesus, we ask Thee to stay
And renew our spirit on this Christmas day.

(Verse 3)
We are all just travelers on this journey called life;
Been through the darkness, and now we see the light.
We carry a treasure more precious than gold,
A gift of redemption, His grace we now hold.
And someday we’ll find ourselves at the foot of the King
With all of God’s angels, His praises we’ll sing.

(Repeat Chorus)
And wise men still seek Him, they follow a star
That leads them to Jesus as travelers a far.
Men of great nations and the poor of the earth
All join together to proclaim Christ’s birth.
