The Three Kings

Three kings walked a long, long way
To the place where Jesus lay.
Herod hailed them as they came:
“What's your journey?” he asked them.

“We are going to see the King
Newly born in Bethlehem.”
“Go then, seek him, see him there,
Then I bid you come back here.”

To the men an Angel came.
Secretly he counseled them:
“Flee from Herod if you can,
For he is an evil man.”

In the east a bright star shone,
Burned with beauty until noon,
Cast its light upon the hay
Where the child King Jesus lay.

words by Sheena Phillips, based on Vladimir Morozov's translation. The original Ukrainian words are included in the score.
