Lyrics: Anon

Tres veniunt reges parva ad praesepia Christi.
Aurum, thus myrrham mistica dona ferunt.
Salve parve puer rex regum maxime,
salve namque hodie per te gentibus
orta salus.

Three kings come to Christ's small crib.
They bear wondrous gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.
Welcome, small boy, greatest king of kings,
welcome, for through you today salvation is arisen amongst the peoples.
