THE wise may bring their learning, 

The rich may bring their wealth, 

And some may bring their greatness, 

And some bring strength and health. 

We too would bring our treasures 

To offer to the King: 

We have no wealth or learning, 

What shall we children bring? 

We'll bring him hearts that love him, 

We'll bring him thankful praise, 

And young souls meekly striving 

To walk in holy ways; 

And these shall be the treasures 

We offer to the King; 

And these are gifts that ever 

The poorest child may bring. 

We'll bring the little duties, 

We have to do each day: 

We'll try our best to please him 

At home, at school, at play. 

And better far these treasures 

To offer to our King 

Than richest gifts without them; 

Yet these a child may bring.
