The magi came to bow before the child
“King of the Jews”, although His nation scorned
His royalty, and were not reconciled.
The regal grace by which He was adorned
Was not of man; His glory was unique,
When He was entering Jerusalem,
Acclaimed by man, borne on an ass, but meek
And ready to lay down His life for them.
None can rise up against Him: Satan's spear
Is broken, and He quelled the sword of death:
The righteous King shall, when He shall appear
Consume the lawless one with His mouth's breath.
He will arise with healing in His wings
For men, the Lord of lords and King of kings.
