1. When the song begins...(During Verse 1) make remarks about how Jesus is the King of Kings. The people of the Gentile Nations worshiped our savior at the time of His birth. Emphasize that these were great men of science and learning. Their journey was long, but, their inspiration was the Star in The East.
2. As the song continues, (During Verses 2 - 3)
read Matthew 2: 1-12. Let the song end.
3. When the song restarts, sing Verses 1-3 together.
4. Prayer - Meditation
We three kings of Orient are;
bearing gifts we traverse afar,
field and fountain, moor and mountain,
following yonder star.
O star of wonder, star of light,
star with royal beauty bright,
westward leading, still proceeding,
guide us to thy perfect light.
Born a King on Bethlehem's plain,
gold I bring to crown him again,
King forever, ceasing never,
over us all to reign. (Refrain)
Frankincense to offer have I;
incense owns a Deity nigh;
prayer and praising, voices raising,
worshiping God on high. (Refrain)
