A man set off for Bethlehem
to find himself a king.
An animal and jar of oil
was all he had to bring.
He knew he would be met with fear
for people knew his name,
but he was sure God sent him there
to make a special claim.

When he arrived in Bethlehem
God led him to a man
whose eight fine boys must surely be
a part of God’s great plan.
He gathered all the older sons,
the handsome and the strong;
but none of them would fit the part
to be God’s chosen one.

Verses 3-4 follow
