We Three Kings

Misc. Christmas

John Hopkins. publ.1857

 We three kings of Orient are 
 Bearing gifts we traverse afar  
 Field and fountain, moor and mountain  
 Following yonder star

 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 plain. Gold I bring to crown him again. King
forever ceasing never. Over us all to reign.

Frankincense to offer have I. Incense owns a deity night. Prayer and
praising, all men raising. Worship Him, God on high.

Myrrh is mine; it's bitter perfume. Breathes a life of gathering gloom.
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying, Sealed in a stone cold tomb.

Glorious now behold him arise, King and God, and sacrifice; Heaven sings
Alleluia; Alleluia the earth replies.
