Lyrics: Latin Antiphon

Magi videntes stellam, dixerunt ad invicem:
hoc signum magni regis est.
Eamus et inquiramus et offeramus ei munera:
aurum, thus et myrrham.

The magi, seeing the star, said, each in turn:
This is the sign of a great king.
Let us go and look for him and offer him gifts:
gold, frankincense and myrrh.
