Tune:  "We Three Kings"
Music by John H. Hopkins

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 perfect light

Born a king at sunrise so bright
Gold I bring to honor the light
King forever, ceasing never
Light is reborn this night

Frankincense to offer have I
Scent of praise for birth that is nigh
Joy and praising, all now raising
Worship the God most high.

Myrrh is mine, the incense of night
Gone is he away from our sight
Yet in Sorrow, know tomorrow
Surely will bring new light

Glorious now behold him arise
King and God and Sacrifice
Alleluia, Alleluia
Earth to Heaven replies
