Reges terrae congregati sunt convenerunt in unum
dicentes, eamus in Judaeam et inquiramus
ubi est qui natus est rex magnus cuius stellam vidimus.
Et venientes invenerunt puerum cum Maria matre eius
et procidentes adoraverunt eum offerentes ei aurum thus et myrrham.

The kings of the earth assembled and gathered together into one place,
saying, Let us go into Judea and ask,
"Where is he that is born a great king, whose star we have seen?"
And coming in, they found the child with Mary his mother,
and falling down they adored him, offering him gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
