We three kings

MELODIE MELODIE

  

We three kings of Or-i-ent are; 
Bear-ing gifts we tra-verse a-far 
Field and foun-tain, moor and moun--tain, 
Fol-low-ing yon-der star:  
Oh - star of wond-der, star of night, 
Star with roy-al beau-ty bright, 
West-ward lead-ing, still pro-ceed-ing, 
Guide us to thy per-fect light.  

Born a king on Beth-le-hem's plain, 
Gold I bring to crown Him a-gain 
King for-ev-er, ceas-ing ne--ver, 
O-ver us all to reign:  
Oh - star of wond-der, star of night, 
Star with roy-al beau-ty bright, 
West-ward lead-ing, still pro-ceed-ing, 
Guide us to thy per-fect light.  

Frank-in-cense to of-fer have I; 
In-cense owns a De-i-ty nigh:  
Prayer and prais-ing, all men rais--ing, 
Wor-ship Him, God most high:  
Oh - star of wond-der, star of night, 
Star with roy-al beau-ty bright, 
West-ward lead-ing, still pro-ceed-ing, 
Guide us to thy per-fect light.  

Myrrh is mine; its bit-ter per-fume 
Breathes a life of ga-ther-ing gloom; 
Sor-rowing, sigh-ing, bleed-ing, dy--ing, 
Sealed in the stone-cold tomb:  
Oh - star of wond-der, star of night, 
Star with roy-al beau-ty bright, 
West-ward lead-ing, still pro-ceed-ing, 
Guide us to thy per-fect light.  

Glor-rious now, be-hold him a-rise, 
King, and God, and Sac--ri-fice!  
Heav'n sings, "Al-le al-le-lu--ia 
"Al-le-lu-ia!" th'earth re-plies:  
Oh - star of wond-der, star of night, 
Star with roy-al beau-ty bright, 
West-ward lead-ing, still pro-ceed-ing, 
Guide us to thy per-fect light.
