It is suggested to have been written in 1857 but did not appear in print until his Carols, Hymns and Songs in 1863.

We Three Kings Of Orient Are Glockenspiel / Xylophone Sheet Music and Note Chart
As you can see on the color chart after the music sheet, the song consists of 8 notes. It begins in the D minor key to change, at the second part, to F major. Thus, the notes used are as follows: C – D – E – F – G – A – B♭ – C’.
Watch the video a couple of times and study each part at your own pace until you get the hang of it. Remember to use both mallets as much as you can. For this purpose avoid using only the hand that is more convenient for you (e.g. the right one if you’re right-handed) as this an important basic technique.
