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