“Thewhiterabbit” has reminded us that today is Epiphany, the 12th Day of Christmas: and what could be more suitable to the occasion than We Three Kings?
Actually, the Bible (in Matthew Chapter 2) never calls them kings, but only “wise men from the East.” Then again, they bring gifts fit for a king, and not easily obtainable on a wise man’s salary–gold and frankincense, and myrrh. So maybe the tradition’s not far off the mark.
I love this rendition of the carol by Hugh Jackman, David Hodson, and Peter Cousen, from a Christmas special on Australian TV. They put their hearts into it, and it’s heartening to know that some of our entertainers, at least, love to praise the Lord Our God.
