As with gladness men


    • As with gladness men of old 
    • Did the guiding star behold; 
    • As with joy they hailed its light, 
    • Leading onward, beaming bright, 
    • So, most gracious God, may we 
    • Evermore be led by Thee. 

    • As with joyful steps they sped, 
    • Saviour, to Thy lowly bed, 
    • There to bend the knee before 
    • Thee whom heaven and earth adore, 
    • So may we with willing feet 
    • Ever seek Thy mercy-seat. 

    • As they offered gifts most rare 
    • At Thy cradle rude and bare, 
    • So may we with holy joy, 
    • Pure, and free from sin's alloy, 
    • All our costliest treasures bring, 
    • Christ, to Thee, our heavenly King. 

    • Holy Jesus, every day 
    • Keep us in the narrow way; 
    • And, when earthly things are past, 
    • Bring our ransomed souls at last 
    • Where they need no star to guide, 
    • Where no clouds Thy glory hide. 

    • In the heavenly country bright 
    • Need they no created light; 
    • Thou its light, its joy, its crown, 
    • Thou its sun, which goes not down. 
    • There forever may we sing 
    • Hallelujahs to our King
