They Rejoiced Exceedingly...

James Tissot - The Magi Journeying (Les rois mages en
voyage) - Brooklyn Museum
And behold, the star that they had seen when it rose went before them until it came to rest over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy. And going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh.
