1 Seeking a King who was born in a manger,
Wise men of old by a star-gleam were led;
Ruler of all, yet He came as a stranger,
Only a litter of straw for His bed.
Seeking a King who His glory was hiding,
Seeking a King in a manger afar;
Seeking a King, lo, the heavens are guiding,
Led are their feet by a Wonderful star.
2 Onward they journey, though footsore and weary,
Seeking the King in that manger afar;
Days may be long and the nights may be dreary,
Onward they go by the light of the Star. [Refrain]
3 Led by the gleam of the Star of the Ages,
Lo, they are brought to that far manger shrine;
Star of the Christ-child which guided the sages,
Guide ever on to the King all-divine. [Refrain]Source: Hymns for Today: for Sunday Schools, Young People's Societies, The Church, The Home, Community Welfare Associations, and Patriotic Meetings #71
