4 Wise men, guided by his star,
   lay your treasures at his feet.

      now enthroned, his work complete.


5 Let's unite to worship him,
   Christ who died to set us free.
      Come and praise the King of Glory,
      Born in deep humility:
      Jesus, Saviour, Lord most worthy,
      crowned for all eternity!
