Ab oriente venerunt magi
dicentes: Ubi est qui natus est rex Judaeorum?
Vidimus enim stellam eius in oriente,
et venimus adorare eum.

There came wise men from the East to Jerusalem,
saying: Where is he that is born King of the Jews?
For we have seen his star in the East,
and are come to worship him.
