We Three Kings

April, 2024

Listen (.mp3)

1.	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 light, 
	star with royal beauty bright, 
	westward leading, still proceeding, 
	guide us to thy perfect light. 

2.	Born a King on Bethlehem's plain, 
	gold I bring to crown him again, 
	King forever, ceasing never, 
	over us all to reign. 

3.	Frankincense to offer have I; 
	incense owns a Deity nigh; 
	prayer and praising, voices raising, 
	worshiping God on high. 

4.	Myrrh is mine; its bitter perfume 
	breathes a life of gathering gloom; 
	sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying, 
	sealed in the stone-cold tomb. 

5.	Glorious now behold him arise; 
	King and God and sacrifice: 
	Alleluia, Alleluia, 
	sounds through the earth and skies.
