"We Three Kings", also known as "We Three Kings of Orient Are" or "The Quest of the Magi", is a Christmas carol written by Reverend John Henry Hopkins, Jr., who wrote both the lyrics and the music as part of a Christmas pageant for the General Theological Seminarymarker in New York Citymarker. It is suggested to have been written in 1857 but did not appear in print until his Carols, Hymns and Song in 1863. Hopkins composed the song in Williamsportmarker, Pennsylvaniamarker, where he was a pastor at Christ Episcopal Church (which still stands at the corner of Fourth and Mulberry Streets).
