We Three Kings of Orient Are
We Three Kings
We three kings of orient are, bearing gifts we traverse afar
Field and fountain, moor and mountain, following yonder star.
cho: Oh, star of wonder, star of night, star with royal beauty bright.
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide with 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. .....
(Casper) Frankincense to offer have I, incense owns a Deity nigh
Pray'r and praising, all men raising,
Worship him, God most high, oh.....
(Balthazar) Myrrh is mine, its bitter perfume breathes a life of
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying, sealed in the stone cold tomb.
(all Glorious now behold him arise, king and God and sacrifice
Alleluia, alleluia, heaven to earth replies. ....

About 'We Three Kings of Orient Are'
|The Artist:||Traditional Music of unknown author.|
We Three Kings", also known as "We Three Kings of Orient Are" or "The Quest of the Magi", is a Christmas carol written by the Reverend John Henry Hopkins, Jr., who wrote both the lyrics and the music. It is suggested to have been written in 1857 but did not appear in print until his Carols, Hymns and Song in 1863. John Henry Hopkins, Jr., then an ordained deacon in the Episcopal Church, was instrumental in organizing an elaborate holiday pageant (which featured this hymn) for the students of the General Theological Seminary in New York City in 1857 while serving as the seminary's music director. In 1872 Hopkins was ordained an Episcopal priest and later served as rector at Christ Episcopal Church (Williamsport, PA).
