As with Gladness Men of Old

OHT Incipit:  

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
To the lowly manger bed,
There to bend the knee before
Him who earth and heaven 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.
