Version 1

I saw three kings upon the break of day
Come riding, riding from their foreign regions,
Come riding, riding with their vast array.
Their gifts of gold for the Christ they bore,
Were guarded close by a band of warriors.
Their bucklers, shields, shining swords so bright
Were shining, flashing morning light.
