    Kings of Orient

    Eins meiner Lieblingsdreikönigslieder
    (Neben dem)

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

    Refrain:

    Star of wonder, star of light,
    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, voices raising,
    Worshipping God most 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,
    Earth to heaven replies.

    (Refrain)
