We three kings of orient are,

Bearing gifts we travel 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 your perfect light!

Born a King on Bethlehem’s plain –

Gold I bring to crown Him again:

King forever, ceasing never,
Over us all to reign.

Frankincense to offer have I –

Incense tells of deity nigh;
Prayer and praising, all are raising:

Worship Him – God most high!

Myrrh is mine – its bitter perfume

Breathes a life of gathering gloom:

Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying,

Sealed in the stone-cold tomb.

Glorious now behold Him arise –

King and God and sacrifice!

Heaven sings ‘Alleluia!’ –

‘Alleluia!’ the earth replies.
