Text heard on Sample:

Offerings they brought of gold, frankincense and myrrh,
But who can tell who gave the gift that's most precious,
Holiest of all and most fragrant?
Is it not he who gave away his dearest,
To the mager brought his dearest and only gift,
To the manger where love was born;
He who searches his soul and gives away with joy whatever he has?
So let us give thanks, give thanks and praise!

And bring offerings of gold, frankincense and myrrh.
But who can say, who is the wisest of all the magi?
The wisest and the noblest amongst his kind?
Is it not He who gave away his one and only treasure?
Because when He was sacrificed his everything,
His riches outweigh those of kings and magi!
He is wiser and nobler, higher and wealthier than all princes of the orient
So let us give thanks,
Give thanks and praise!
