A Christmas card and carol

We Three Kings of Orient Are

Did you know that this was written by an American, the Rev. John Henry Hopkins, in 1867? The lyrics include:

  Frankincense to offer have I
Incense owns a Deity Nigh
 
But beware:
 
 
                     Myrrh is mine, its bitter perfume
Breathes a life of gathering gloom
 
 
 
Have a great Christmas and a peaceful New Year
