Gold signified royalty, and frankincense, deity. Myrrh foretold that the Christ child was born to die. The first line of the song contains two historical inaccuracies. First, the visitors from the East were magi, not kings.
Second, though Matthew says there were three gifts, the Bible does not say that there were also three magi, one for each gift; that is a matter of tradition.
