Let eastern tribes their offering bring,
'Twas there the pious men
Prepar'd to visit Christ their king,
When they his star had seen.
Through dreary deserts to the pass,
They journey’d from afar,
Till Bethlehem they reach'd at last,
Led by the heavenly star.
The first-fruits of the Gentile race,
Did their rich offering bring,
They bow before the Saviour's face,
And crown the infant king.
