Epiphany in Four Stanzas

They studied the stars
Trying to unlock
The secrets of the universe;
Instead a sign appeared
Revealing to them
A sign from God.

A bright celestial object
Announced the birth
Of someone important:
The son of God.
Revealed to foreigners
From the East.

They came bringing gifts
For the One they knew
Would be King.
His mother pondered
Their arrival
In her heart.

Years later His cousin
Would baptize Him
In the Jordan.
God again announce
His Son to the world,
For all humankind.

Yup. Originals. I'm not plagiarizing.
