The first to come and see the Christ Child
to gaze in wonder at the Lamb of God
knew lambs so well
The Lamb of God who would take away the sins of the world
now lay in a manger, wrapped in cloth
as the angel told those first visitors
Did those first visitors ever see the Lamb of God again?
Did they see him as he grew up and became a man?
Or was this the only time they saw the one who takes away the sins of the world
laid in a cattle stall
this Lamb of God
who they were the first visitors
