Let Us Go (Journey of the Magi)

The Magi Journeying - James Tissot

Let us go then,
journey toward the setting sun,
where stars guide
and prophets call from mountains tops.
Let us bring
gifts,
trinkets of gold
and spices
for life and death.

Let us seek
and perhaps come to believe
that kingdoms are announced
by the lights in the heavens.
Let us go
to thrones and palaces.
Let us go
where the star leads
in the depths of night.

Let us go then,
to lands foreign,
to mountains and plains
we have never before crossed.
And when we find what we seek
let us bow our heads
and know we have found
the answer
to every question
we have ever asked.
