The Wise May Bring Their Learning

Full Text

1 The wise may bring their learning,
the rich may bring their wealth,
and some may bring their greatness,
and some their strength and health.

2 We too would bring our treasures
to offer to the King.
We have no wealth or learning--
what treasures shall we bring?

3 We'll bring hearts filled with loving,
we'll bring our thankful praise,
while always humbly trying
to follow in God's ways.
