Lyrics: Anon

Magi ab oriente alta tecta intrarunt Solymorum.
Ubi natus est Judæorum princeps
cuius agnovimus stellam præclaram?
thus et aurum offeremus ei.

The magi from the east entered lofty-roofed Jerusalem.
Where is the Prince of the Jews born,
whose bright star we have recognised?
that we may present him with frankincense and gold.
