1. Guided by a star
Came three Kings afar,
Holy Even!, Holy even!
Found the Heavín born child
By His mother Mild,
Alleluia! Alleluia
Art thou then a Queen
Stately thus be seen?
Holy Even!, Holy even!
Kinges daughter free,
Surely thou must be,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Nay, good sirs, no Queen,
Poor my folk and mean.

2. Who, then is thy child?
Tell us Mother mild!
Holy Even!, Holy even!
For to Him a star.
Led us from a far
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Royal gifts we bring
Is He not a King?
Holy Even!, Holy even!
Aye, good sirs, a King;
All the gifts ye bring,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Scarce befit His state,
Never child so great,

3. Yea, we saw His star,
Shining from afar,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Tell us, mother mild,
Of thy wondrous Child!
Holy Even!, Holy even!
Angels at His birth,
Songs of peace on earth,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Simple shepherds all
Worshiped at the stall,
Holy even!
Thoí a Child He be,
King of Kings is He

4. Here are gems and gold!
Such a King may hold!
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Frankincense I bear,
For a Priestes care!
Holy even! Holy even!
Myrrh alone I bring,
For His burying!
Alleluia! Alleluia!
These we broít from far,
Guided by the star,
Holy even!
Bless us mother mild,
Save us Holy Child,
