Lo! star-led chiefs, Assyrian odours bring,

Lo! star-led chiefs, Assyrian odours bring,
And bending Magi
bending Magi seek their infant King!
bending Magi seek their infant King!

Mark'd ye, mark'd ye where hov'ring o'er his head,
hov'ring o'er his head, o'er his radiant head,
The dove's white wings celestial, celestial glory shed,
celestial glory shed, celestial glory shed?

Lo! star-led chiefs, Assyrian odours bring,
And bending Magi seek their infant King!
Mark'd ye, mark'd ye where, hov'ring o'er his head,
where, hov'ring o'er his head, o'er his radiant head.

The dove's white wings celestial,
celestial glory shed? o'er his radiant head,
Mark'd ye, where, hov'ring o'er his radiant head,
The dove's white wings celestial glory shed,
The dove's white wings celestial glory shed?
