The Wise May Bring Their Learning

Melody -

1. 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?
  2. We'll bring to him the duties
We have to do each day;
We'll try our best to please him,
At home, at school, at play:
And better are these treasures
To offer to our King
Than richest gifts without them;
Yet these a child may bring.

3. We'll bring him hearts that love him,
We'll bring him thankful praise,
And souls for ever striving
To follow in his ways:
And these shall be the treasures
We offer to the King,
And these are gifts that even
The poorest child may bring.
