GUEST,Don Wise Tune Req: songs about the magi (87* d) Lyr Add: KING HEROD AND THE COCK 13 Dec 12


Here's one involving the Magi you've all missed:

KING HEROD AND THE COCK

There was a star in David's land
In David's land schon clear
And in King Herod's chamber
So bright it did shine there

The Wise Men they soon spied it
And they told the king on high
That a heavenly babe was born that night
No man would ever destroy

If this be true King Herod said
That you've been telling me
Then the roasted cock that's in this dish
Shall crow full fences three

Now the cock soon feathered and thrust and grew
By the working of God's own hand
Three times that roasted cock did crow
In the dish where it did stand
