Magi videntes[viderunt] stellam
[qui] dixerunt ad invicem
hoc signum magni regis est
eamus et inquiramus eum
et offeramus ei munera
aurum thus et mirrhum

Dutch.png Dutch translation

Toen de wijzen de ster hadden gezien,
zeiden zij, elk op zijn beurt:
"Dit is het teken van een groot vorst.
Laten wij hem gaan zoeken
en hem geschenken aanbieden:
goud, wierook en mirre."

English.png English translation

The magi, having seen the star,
said, each in turn:
"This is the sign of a great king!
Let us go and look for him
and offer him gifts,
gold, frankincense and myrrh."
