2. 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. 

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

3. Caspar. 

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

4. Balthazar. 

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

5. Glorious now behold Him arise. 
King and God and sacrifice. 
Alleluia, Alleluia; 

Earth to the heavens replies.
