As with gladness men of old

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 Lord, may we
Evermore be led to Thee

As with joyful steps they sped
To that lowly manger bed
There to bend the knee before
Him whom heav’n and earth adore
So may we with willing feet
Ever seek Thy mercy seat

As they offered gifts most rare
At that manger 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 heav’nly King

Holy Jesus, ev’ry 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 heav’nly 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
Alleluias to our King
