We Three Kings of Orient Are
In 1857, Dr. John H. Hopkins of Pennsylvania wrote both the lyrics and melody to this song as a Christmas gift for his nephews and nieces.
We three kings of Orient are;
Bearing gifts we traverse afar,
Field and fountain,
moor and mountain,
Following yonder star.
O star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.
