WE THREE KINGS OF ORIENT ARE


 

We Three Kings of Orient Are

 

[all]

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


Chorus

O, Star of wonder, star of night
Star of royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to Thy perfect light.

[Melchior]

Born a King on Bethlehem's plain,
Gold I bring, to crown Him again,
King for ever, ceasing never,
Over us all to reign.

 

[all]

Chorus

O, Star of wonder, star of night
Star of royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to Thy perfect light.

 

[Caspar]

Frankincense to offer have I,
Incense owns a Deity nigh;
Prayer and praising, all men raising,
Worship Him, God most high

 

[all]

Chorus

O, Star of wonder, star of night
Star of royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to Thy perfect light.


[Balthazar]

Myrrh is mine, its bitter perfume
Breathes a life of gathering gloom;
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying,
Sealed in the stone-cold tomb

 

[all]

Chorus

O, Star of wonder, star of night
Star of royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to Thy perfect light.

 

Glorious now behold Him arise,
King and God and sacrifice,
Alleluia, Alleluia
Earth to the heavens replies

 

Chorus

O, Star of wonder, star of night
Star of royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to Thy perfect light.
