We Three Kings -- a song for Epiphany

Strictly speaking,  John Henry Hopkins' "We Three Kings" isn't a Christmas carol, even though that's when it usually gets sung.  That's because we conflate the two infancy narratives.   But this is a song for Epiphany, the day of God's revealing (Matthew 2:1-12).

So, here is a version of it from youtube, which is apparently sung by the Robert Shaw Chorale.  Just a note on Shaw, his father was a Disciples pastor, who served the Santa Barbara church I once pastored.
