Variation IV: The Three Kings
Language: English 
There came three kings fro Galilee
Into Bethlehem, that fair city,
To seek Him that should ever be by right-a,
Lord and king and knight-a.

They took their leave, both old and ying,
Of Herod, that moody king;
They went forth with their 
offering by light-a,
By the star that shone so bright-a.

Till they came into the place
Where Jesus and His mother was,
Offered they up with great solace in fere-a
Gold, incense, and myrrh-a.

Forth then went these kingës three,
Till they came home to theri country;
Glad and blithe they were all three
Of the sight that they had see bydene-a
