Original text and translations
Bring gold and frankincense and myrrh,
Those mystic gifts of price confer
Upon the baby in the stall,
Who gives the costliest gift of all.
Whose oriental star doth rise,
The brightest in the winter skies,
Whom Judah’s shepherds haste to own
Is to the gentile world made known.
Earth’s wealthy rulers bow before the God
For us made mean and poor,
Creator of the earth and sky,
The King who only lives to die.
