Lyrics: As with gladness men of old <br/>Did the guiding star behold; <br/>As with joy they hailed its light, <br/>Leading onward, beaming bright; <br/>So, most gracious Lord may we <br/>Evermore be led by Thee. <br/> <br/>As with joyful steps they sped <br/>To that lowly manger-bed, <br/>There to bend the knee before <br/>Him whom heav'n and earth adore; <br/>So may we with willing feet <br/>Ever seek Thy mercyseat. <br/> <br/>As their precious gifts they laid, <br/>At Thy manger roughly made, <br/>So may we with holy joy, <br/>Pure, and free from sin’s alloy <br/>Contrite hearts as gifts to bring <br/>Christ, to Thee our Heav'nly King. <br/> <br/>Jesus, Saviour, every day <br/>Keep us in the narrow way; <br/>And, when earthly things are past, <br/>Bring our ransomed lives at last <br/>Where we need no star to guide, <br/>Where no clouds Thy glory hide. <br/> <br/>In that heavenly country bright <br/>Need they no created light; <br/>Thou its light, its joy, its crown, <br/>Thou its sun which goes not down; <br/>There forever may we sing <br/>Alleluias to our King!
