Lyrics
Verse 1
We three kings of Orient are 
Bearing gifts we traverse afar. 
Field and fountain, moor and mountain, 
Following yonder star. 
 
Chorus
O star of wonder, star of night, 
Star of royal beauty bright, 
Westward leading, still proceeding, 
Guide us to thy perfect light. 
 
Verse 2
Born a king on Bethlehem's plain, 
Gold I bring to crown Him again, 
King forever, ceasing never 
Over us all to reign. 
 
Chorus
O star of wonder, star of night, 
Star of royal beauty bright, 
Westward leading, still proceeding, 
Guide us to thy perfect light. 
 
Verse 3
Frankincense to offer have I. 
Incense owns a Deity nigh. 
Prayer and praising all men raising, 
Worship Him, God on high. 
 
Chorus
O star of wonder, star of night, 
Star of royal beauty bright, 
Westward leading, still proceeding, 
Guide us to thy perfect light. 
 
Verse 4
Myrrh is mine: It's bitter perfume 
Breaths a life of gathering gloom. 
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying, 
Sealed in a stone-cold tomb. 
 
Chorus
O star of wonder, star of night, 
Star of royal beauty bright, 
Westward leading, still proceeding, 
Guide us to thy perfect light. 
 
Verse 5
Glorious now behold Him arise, 
King and God and Sacrifice. 
Alleluia, alleluia! 
Earth to heav'n replies. 
 
Chorus
O star of wonder, star of night, 
Star of royal beauty bright, 
Westward leading, still proceeding, 
Guide us to thy perfect light.
