Follow the star to a place unexpected
Would you believe, after all we've projected,
A child in a manger?
Lowly and small, the weakest of all
Unlikeliest hero, wrapped in his mother's shawl -
Just a child -
Is this who we've waited for? 'cause...

How many kings step down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?
And how many gods have poured out their hearts
To romance a world that is torn all apart
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?

Bringing our gifts for the newborn Savior
All that we have, whether costly or meek
Because we believe.
Gold for his honor, and frankincense for his pleasure
And myrrh for the cross he will suffer
Do you believe?
Is this who we've waited for?

All for me...
All for you...

    I always thought of jesus dying on the cross for us as jesus's love for us, and it was, but the sacrifice that god made never really hit me until this song.

    I just puts it all in a perspective that wedon't usually think about... I mean do you know any other kings who would do all that for a bunch of people who weren't even born yet? No, but god did that for us. He did it for me.

    This song really gets to me just thinking of what he did for us gives me a thought that i cant explain if you can he loves us and we know it and he will always love us you cant say he doesn't because we already know it and he does to.

    I loved that song. Because they showed the simplicity jesus' love for us, i think that this song showed us the true love that you have with next and also showed that all of together will be more happy. :d

    It's really a good question. Did the wise men believe. This song is like a conversation between two of them. Did they really believe that the little baby was a king? But because of the love of god, and all of his sacrifices, he died for our sins.
