Over the hills to Bethlehem

Representative Text

1 Over the hills to Bethlehem
Who comes this way? Who comes this way?
Over the hills to Bethlehem
Who comes this way today?

2 Here come three Kings to Bethlehem,
Riding this way. Riding this way
Here come three Kings to Bethlehem
Riding this way today.

3 I am a King from lands afar,
Rich gold I bring, gift for the king.
I am a King from lands afar
Following yonder star.

4 I am a King from lands afar
Incense I bring, gift for the king.
I am a King from lands afar
Following yonder star.

5 I am a King from lands afar
An Myrrh I bring, gift for the king.
I am a King from lands afar
Following yonder star.

6 Over the hills from Bethlehem
Who rides away? Who rides away?
Over the hills from Bethlehem
Who rides another way?

7 Three Kings have gone from Bethlehem,
Riding away. Riding away.
Three Kings have gone from Bethlehem
Home by another way.
