We three kings of Orient are
Bearing gifts we traverse afar
Field and fountain, moor and mountain
Following yonder star

(Chorus:)
O, star of wonder star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading still proceeding
Guide us to thy perfect light

Born a king on Bethlehem plain.
Gold I bring to crown him again.
King forever ceasing never.
Over us all to reign.

(Chorus)

Frankincense to offer have I.
Incense owns a deity night.
Prayer and praising, all men raising.
Worship Him, God on high.

(Chorus)

Myrrh is mine; it's bitter perfume.
Breathes a life of gathering gloom. 
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying,
Sealed in a stone cold tomb.

(Chorus)

Glorious now behold him arise,
King and God, and sacrifice;
Heaven sings Alleluia;
Alleluia the earth replies.
