We Three Kings

Em                B7    Em
We three kings of Orient are;
Em                B7      Em
Bearing gifts, we traverse afar,
Em        D        G
Field and fountain, moor and mountain,
Am        B7    Em
Following yonder star.
Chorus:


D7  G              C      G
O, star of wonder, star of night,
G                C      G
Star with royal beauty bright,
Em        D        C        D7
Westward leading, still proceeding
G                  C    G
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 reign.
(chorus)
Frankincense to offer have I;
Incense owns a Deity night;
Prayer and praising, voices raising,
Worship Him, God on high.
(chorus)
Myrrh is mine: its bitter perfume
Breathes a life of gathering gloom;
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying,
Sealed in the stone-cold tomb.
(chorus)
Glorious now behold Him arise,
King and God and Sacrifice;
Alleluia, Alleluia!
Peals through the earth and skies.
(chorus)
