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 to Thee.
As with joyful steps they sped,
Savior, to Thy lowly bed,
There to bend the knee before
Thee whom heav’n 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 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.
“As With Gladness, Men of Old” was written by William Cahtterton Dix, published in 1861. The tune is ‘Dix’, written by the German composer Conrad Kocher in 1838. © Public Domain
