St. Mary's Altar by Veit Stoss from the XV century in Krakow

 Stella, quam viderant Magi in Oriente, antecedebat eos, donec venirent ad locum, ubi puer erat.
* Videntes autem eam, gavisi sunt gaudio magno.
Et intrantes domum, invenerunt puerum cum Maria matre eius, et procidentes adoraverunt eum.
The star which the wise men had seen in the East, went before them, till they came where the young Child was.
* And when they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
And when they were come into the house, they found the young Child with Mary His Mother, and fell down and worshipped Him.
