Lyrics: Anon

Ab oriente venerunt magi
in Bethlehem adorare Dominum;
et apertis thesauris suis
preciosa munera obtulerunt ei:
aurum sicut regi magno,
thus sicut Deo vero,
myrrham sepulturae eius.
Alleluia.

The wise men came from the East
unto Bethlehem to worship the Lord;
and from opened coffers
they offered precious gifts:
Gold, as if for a great king,
Incense, as if for the true God,
And myrrh for his burial rites.
Alleluia.
