I Come Before You

I come before you
As a long time ago, the magi did
I remember Caspar, Melchior & Balthazar
Their three fold gifts before you lay.

Frankincense a sign of your divinity
Gold to personify your royalty
Myrrh a bitter reminder of looming dread
Suffering written in the embalming oil.

I come before you
As the star rises in the east
Leading me to do you homage
O King of the three wise kings!

I have no gifts to place before you
I am neither a princess nor a queen
I have only my heart laden with love
To offer it all up to you.

I come before you
You are the royal star of wonder
The perfect light that sets us ablaze
The glorious king risen in the sky.

I come before you
Traversing through the desert of life
Seeking you as the wise men did
To finally reach you one day
Be rewarded with your presence for all time.

Maria Franco
