History for 'We Three Kings'

The Christmas carol We Three Kings of Orient Are was written by Reverend John Henry Hopkins, Jr. in 1857 for a Christmas pageant.

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, "Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him." Matt 2:1-2


Fun Facts for 'We Three Kings'

There may have been more that three kings. Yep, its true! There were three gifts presented to the baby Jesus, though the Bible does not record how many Kings there were. It is believed however, that there were more than three, as they would have preferred to travel in a large group both for protection and as a sign of their importance.


Lyrics for 'We Three Kings'

We three kings of Orient are,
Bearing gifts we traverse afar.
Field and fountain, moor and mountain,
Following yonder star.

Oh, Star of wonder, star of light,
Star with royal beauty bright.
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy Perfect Light.

Born a King on Bethlehem's plain,
Gold I bring to crown Him again.
King forever, ceasing never,
Over us all to rein.

Oh, Star of wonder, star of light,
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.
Pray'r and praising, all men raising,
Worship Him, God most high.

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

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

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

Glorious now behold Him arise,
King and God and Sacrifice.
Alleluia, Alleluia,
Earth to heav'n replies.

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

We three kings of Orient are,
Puffing on a rubber cigar.

Puffing on a rubber cigar.
