Overview

This classic story of faith was written by clergyman Henry Van Dyke, the author of the hymn "Joyful, Joyful, We Adore You". It is the story of the pilgrimage of the fourth wise man who does not make it to Bethlehem in time to present his gif to the baby Jesus, but stops along the way to help those in need. He spends the next 33 years on a quest to reach the Messiah.

"Worn and weary and ready to die, but still looking for the King, he had come for the last time to Jerusalem. He had often visited the holy city before, and had searched through all its lanes and crowded hovels and black prisons without finding any trace of the family of Nazarenes who had fled from Bethlehem long ago. But now it seemed as if he must make one more effort, and something whispered in his heart that, at last, he might succeed."
