V. The star which the wise men had seen in the East went before them, until it came and stood over where the young Child was. And entering... Glory be ... And when they had opened... (The eighth repsonsory for Matins of the the Epiphany.)

R. Videntes stellam Magi, gavísi sunt gaudio magno: * et intrantes domum invenérunt púerum cum María matre ejus, et procidentes adoravérunt eum: * et apertis thesauris suis obtulérunt ei múnera, aurum, thus, et myrrham. V. Stella, quam víderant Magi in Oriente, antecedébat eos, usque dum veniens staret supra ubi erat puer. Et intrántes domum. Gloria Patri. Et apértis thesáuris suis.
