The Epiphany Star

202. The Epiphany Star

In 2004 I listened to a sermon and went home and wrote this song. I didn’t write the music out—I just wrote the words out. I took it to the Bible Study the next Wednesday and sang it to them and they all agreed that it fit the sermon. It is now nine years later and it is in the file marked “Music.” It is still not written out—perhaps this year I’ll get to it. I still remember the notes of the chorus but the notes for the verses are experiencing slippage.

It still speaks to me of today—of Epiphany—of wise ones and where I am and where I want to go.

Following the Star

Herod wanted to protect his kingdom,

Herod wanted to stay in control,

And sometimes I, oh yes, sometimes I

Can feel the Herod in me.

I want to follow the star, stay on the path,

I want to make the journey.

I want to follow the star, stay on the path,

And go home walking in God’s way.

All the religious didn’t want any changes,

All the religious wanted things to stay the same,

And sometimes I, oh yes, sometimes I

Can feel those religious in me.

I want to follow the star, stay on the path,

I want to make the journey.

I want to follow the star, stay on the path,

And go home walking in God’s way.

Wise ones followed the star,

Fell to their knees in surrender to a new King,

Wise ones offered their gifts

And this day so would I.

I want to follow the star, stay on the path,

I want to make the journey.

I want to follow the star, stay on the path,

And go home walking in God’s way.
