INTRO/INTERLUDES:  Em    Bm    (x2)

 

 

Em                           

We three kings of Orient are

Em                         

Bearing gifts we traverse afar.

Em             D/F#      G       

Field and fountain, moor and mountain,

Am           Em                         D   

Following yon—der star.     Oh-o

 

 

    Refrain

    G                          C         G

    Star of wonder, star of night,

    G                        C          G

    Star with royal beauty bright.

     Em             D            C          G

    Westward leading, still proceeding,

     Em                      Bm       Em  

    Guide us to thy Perfect Light.

   

 

Em                      Bm              Em  

Born a King on Bethlehem's plain,

Em                      Bm             Em  

Gold I bring to crown Him again.

Em       D/F#   G       

King forever, ceasing never,

Am       Em                          D   

Over us all to reign.       Oh-o

 

 

    Refrain

Em                      Bm             Em  

Frankincense to offer have I,

Em                      Bm    Em  

Incense owns a deity nigh.

Em               D/F#       G    

Prayer and praising, all men raising, 

Am                  Em                           D  

Worship Him, God most high.    Oh-o

 

 

    Refrain

 

 

Em                        

Myrrh is mine, its bitter perfume, 

Em                            

Breathes of life of gathering gloom. 

Em         D/F#       G    

Sorrow, sighing, bleeding, dying, 

Am                  Em                           D  

Sealed in the stone cold tomb.   Oh-o

 

 

    Refrain

 

 

Em                       Bm            Em  

Glorious now behold Him arise, 

Em                           Bm    Em  

King and God and Sacrifice. 

Em    D/F#  G    

Alle—luia, Alleluia,

Am         Em       Bm  Em          D  

Earth to heaven replies.      Oh-o

 

 

    Refrain
