Tune: Three Kings of Orient
LBW/WOV Hymn: #646
ReClaim/Sola Hymn: #130
Scripture: Matthew 2:1b-2
1 We three kings of Orient are; Bearing gifts we traverse afar,
Field and fountain, moor and mountain, Following yonder star.
Oh, Star of wonder, star of night, 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. (refrain)
3 Frankincense to offer have I; Incense owns a deity nigh;
Prayer and praising, gladly raising, Worshiping God Most High. (refrain)
4 Myrrh is mine; its bitter perfume Breathes a life of gathering gloom;
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying, Sealed in the stone-cold tomb. (refrain)
5 Glorious now behold him arise, King and God and Sacrifice;
Heav'n sings alleluia: Alleluia the earth replies. (refrain)
