The popular Epiphany carol, "We Three Kings," was composed by the Rev. John Henry Hopkins, Jr. (1820-1891) for a Christmas pageant for the General Theological Seminary in New York City, where he was instructor in church music.

Originally titled "Three Kings of Orient," it tells of the gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh presented to the infant Christ-child by "wise men [kings or magi] from the East," as recorded in gospel of St. Matthew. It was first published in Hopkins' collection Carols, Hymns, and Songs in 1863 and gained popularity through its inclusion in Christmas Carols Old and New(Novello, London, 1878), the Episcopal Church hymnal of 1916, and the 1928 edition of the Oxford Book of Carols, which called it "one of the most successful of modern composed carols."

This arrangement adapts the original 6/8 meter to a swinging 5/4 reminiscent of Dave Brubeck's "Take Five."
