Lyrics: Anon

Rex Melchior, Rex Gaspar, Rex Balthasar,
rogamus vos per Regem regum,
quem vagientem in cunis videre meruistis,
ut compatiamini tribulationibus nostris.

O King Melchior, King Casper, King Balthasar,
we beseech you, by the King of kings,
whom you deserved to see even in his swaddling-clothes,
that you take pity on our troubles.

Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina
(c.1525 - 1594)

Rex Melchior

(S.A.A.T.B. (or A.T.T.B.B.))
