Slideshow of the Epiphany song "We Three Kings of Orient Are" sung by Jennifer Avalon, accompanied by the lyrics (in English). Both the lyrics and the music were written by John Henry Hopkins, Jr. circa 1857, then an ordained deacon in the Episcopal Church, who was instrumental in organizing an elaborate holiday pageant (which featured this song) for the students of the General Theological Seminary in New York City while serving as the seminary's music director. In 1872, Hopkins was ordained an Episcopal priest and later served as rector at Christ Episcopal Church, Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

The song tells the story of the Magi (found in Matthew 2) traveling to visit to the Christ Child, guided only by the Star of Bethlehem.
