‘Accept, my Child, a trinity of gifts,

Despite having sung and heard John Henry Hopkins carol "We Three Kings" hundreds of times I have never before associated the gifts of the Magi with the Blessed Trinity.

Hopkins final verse, however, is quite instructive:

Glorious, then, all hail him arise,
King, and God, and Sacrifice
Alleluia, Alleluia!
Sounds through the earth and skies
