Choir of Kings College, Cambridge, Sings "We Three Kings Of Orient Are" Arranged by Martin Neary


The Feast of the Epiphany is observed today.
    We three kings of Orient are
    Bearing gifts we traverse afar
    Field and fountain, moor and mountain
    Following yonder star

    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 rein

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

    Frankincense to offer have I
    Incense owns a Deity nigh
    Pray'r and praising, all men raising
    Worship Him, God most high
    O Star of wonder, star of night
    Star with royal beauty bright
    Westward leading, still proceeding
    Guide us to Thy perfect light

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

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

    Glorious now behold Him arise,
    King and God and sacrifice,
    Heaven sings, "Hallelujah!"
    Hallejujah!" Earth replies.

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