Couplet 1

We Three Kings of Orient are,

Bearing gifts we traverse afar,

Field and fountain, Moor and mountain

Following yonder Star.


O Star of Wonder, Star of Night,

Star with Royal Beauty bright,

Westward leading,

Still proceeding,

Guide us to Thy perfect Light.

Couplet 2 (Gaspard)

Born a King on Bethlehem’s plain,

Gold I bring to crown Him again,

King for ever

Ceasing never

Over us all to reign.


Couplet 3 (Melchior)

Frankincense to offer have I,

Incense owns a Deity nigh:

Prayer and praising

All men raising,

Worship Him God on High


 Couplet 4 (Balthazar)

Myrrh is mine;its bitter perfume

Breathes a life of gathering gloom;—

Sorrowing, sighing, Bleeding,


Sealed in the stone-cold tomb


Couplet final

Glorious now behold Him arise,

King, and God, and Sacrifice;

Heav’n sings Hallelujah:

Hallelujah the earth replies.
