here's a song that draws a parallel between the ancient spice traders of the middle east and modern day christians on a similar journey but carrying a very different type of spice..

OVER SPICE LADEN MOUNTAINS

Caravans from Midian
Laden with fine gold
Camel trains crossing desert sands
Traversing ancient roads
Merchants come from distant lands
Aromas thick with spice
Enrich the campfire’s mystic tales
Through those dark Arabian nights

Over spice, over spice laden mountains
Over spice laden mountains of old
Bearing tribute, precious tribute
Paying homage with their gifts of
Pure incense and gold

Nomads of our modern day
Bearing equal precious wares
Gold of worship, pure spice of love
Incense of fervent prayer
Travelers come from many lands
Unite as one to bring
A rich and fragrant offering
Unto the King of Kings
Over spice, over spice laden mountains

Over spice laden mountains of old
Bearing tribute, precious tribute
Paying homage with their gifts of
Pure incense and gold
