We Three Kings of Orient Are

John H. Hopkins (1857)

Lyrics

We three kings of Orient are; 
bearing gifts we traverse afar, 
field and fountain, moor and mountain, 
following yonder star. 

Refrain: 
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's plain, 
gold I bring to crown Him again, 
King forever, ceasing never, 
over us all to reign.

[Refrain]

Frankincense to offer have I; 
incense owns a Deity nigh; 
prayer and praising, all men raising, 
worship Him, God on high.

[Refrain]

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

[Refrain]

Glorious now behold Him arise; 
King and God and Sacrifice; 
Alleluia, Alleluia, 
peals through the earth and skies.

[Refrain]
