All: Come, let us adore Him.
Mother: The precious gifts which the Magi brought to the
Lord this day are threefold,
and they are signs of divine mysteries.
By gold the power of the King is signified,
by frankincense His great priesthood,
by myrrh the burial of the Lord.
All: The Magi worshipped the Author of our salvation in
and of their treasures they brought to Him gifts of
Youngest Child: Glory be to the Father and to the Son and
to the Holy Ghost.
All: As it was in the beginning,
is now and ever shall be, world without end.
Father: Let us pray. O God,
by the leading of a star Thou didst manifest Thine
only begotten Son
to the Gentiles on this day;
mercifully grant that we who know Thee by faith,
may be brought to contemplate the beauty of Thy
Through the same Jesus Christ Thy Son.
The following hymn serves well as a conclusion.
Additional verses may be composed by members of the
The Wise Men tune Jesu Dulcis Memoria
Now there appeared a brilliant Star
Which led the wise Men from afar.
They came and, kneeling down, adored
And offered gifts to Christ, the Lord.
