Contents of HymnSite.com's Baptist Hymnal materials

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.
