Earth Has Many A Noble City

Earth has many a noble city;

Bethlehem, thou dost all excel;

Out of thee the Lord from Heaven

Came to rule His Israel.

Fairer than the sun at morning

Was the star that told His birth,

To the world its God announcing

Seen in fleshly form on earth.

Eastern sages at His cradle

Make oblations rich and rare;

See them give, in deep devotion,

Gold and frankincense and myrrh.

Sacred gifts of mystic meaning:

Incense doth their God disclose,

Gold the King of kings proclaimeth,

Myrrh His sepulcher foreshows.

Jesu, whom the Gentiles worshipped

At Thy glad Epiphany,

Unto Thee, with God the Father

And the Spirit, glory be.
