Alphabet Advent: H is for Herod

Pin It

H is for Herod
and Hallelujah
and Heaven
and Heart
and Harp

The wise men came to Jerusalem,
where the Palace of land stood and the King Herod lived.
They believed that if a great King had been born in Israel,
then he would be found in the palace.

But they were instead instructed to look to a small town,
not very far away from Jerusalem,
where Mary and Joseph had set up a home,
in Bethlehem.

Herod had a wicked and selfish heart.
When the wise men failed to return, 
he had all of the boy babies in Bethlehem
killed that were under 2.

On the night of Jesus birth,
the Angels appeared in the heavens
and sang "Hallelujah, Glory to God in the Highest!"
I wonder if these angels had harps?
