Three brown camels came down the track,
Under the shining star,
Each carried a king upon his back,
Gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Under the shining star,
Regal, noble and full of pride,
Gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Strong and fearless, a warrior great,
Gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Balthazar, king of Ethiopia, came,
Under the shining star,

Gold, frankincense and myrrh.

At length they reached the stable small,
Under the shining star,
Mary had Jesus wrapped in her shawl,
Gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Those camels humble, those camels brown,
Under the shining star,
Set their royal burdens down,
Gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Royal kings and camels three,
Under the shining star,
Before baby Jesus bent their knee,
Gold, frankincense and myrrh.
