The Three Kings


(Provençal folk song used in Bizet’s L’Arlésienne, Lyrics by Stephen Fay, 1924)

Once three kings upon the break of day
Came proudly riding with a train in brave array,
And as they rode I marked the armor bright
That shone like silver in the early light.

As they came of courtiers rode ashore,
With precious offerings in golden store,
And o’er the desert then as on they took their way,
There beamed a star that was bright as day.
