Gold I bring to crown him again. King forever ceasing never. Over us all to reign. Frankincense to offer have I. Incense owns a deity night. Prayer and praising, all men raising. Worship Him, God on high. Myrrh is mine; it's bitter perfume. Breathes a life of gathering gloom. Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying, Sealed in a stone cold tomb. Glorious now behold him arise, King and God, and sacrifice; Heaven sings Alleluia; Alleluia the earth replies.
