The prophets foretold His coming
So all the world would know
The Messiah would very soon be born
Then one day... it was so!
The wise men brought the young child gifts
Gold, frankincense and myrrh
And worshipped Him, who on the cross
Would one day bring sin's cure.
Now these same prophets told us too
That Jesus would come again
To gather all the pure in heart...
Those cleansed from inbred sin.
How many wise men will there be
Prepared to leave that day?
For it's just those with sins forgiven
That shall be caught away.
So at this Christmas time of year
We bring these thoughts to you
And pray to God with all our might
You'll be among the Wise Men too.

Thank you everyone for the great comments.  I just wish all the publishing companies would say all the same things.  They like my work but they all reply  " Not what were looking for at this time and moment."  I guess God is just trying to let me know to be patient and wait for the proper time.

Wonderful! Yes, what a wonderful day that will be! Jer, you actually heard back from publisher's?! Amazing! I'm sure if I had heard back I would have heard the same as you did! geesh...can't tell you how much money I spent on stamps, return envelopes, not to mention time...I guess most don't feel the need to reply (?) just seems to me that it would be the courteous thing to do!
Again, Jer wonderful poem!
