1. We three kings of Orient are: Bearing gifts we traverse afar, Field and fountain, moor and mountain, Following yonder star. (Refrain) 2. Born a King on Bethlehem's plain, Gold I bring to crown Him again, King forever, ceasing never, Over us all to reign. (Refrain) 3. Frankincense to offer have I; Incense owns a Deity nigh; Prayer and praising, all men raising, Worship Him, God on high. (Refrain) 4. Myrrh is mine; its bitter perfume Breathes a life of gathering gloom; Sorr'wing, sighing, bleeding, dying, Sealed in the stone-cold tomb. (Refrain) 5. Glorious now behold Him arise: King and God and Sacrifice; Alleluia, Alleluia! Earth to heav'n replies. (Refrain) Refrain: O star of wonder, star of light, Star with royal beauty bright, Westward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to thy perfect light.
