1. 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 your splendor see.

2. As with joyful steps they sped To that lowly manger-bed,
There to bend the knee before Christ whom heaven and earth adore;
So may we with hurried pace  Run to seek your throne of grace.

3. As they offered gifts most rare At that manger crude and bare;
So may we this holy day, Drawn to you without delay,
All our costliest treasures bring, Christ, to you, our heavenly King.

4. Christ Redeemer, with us stay, Help us live your holy way;
And when earthly things are past, Bring our ransomed souls at last
Where they need no star to guide, Where no clouds your glory hide.

5. In the heavenly city bright None shall need created light;
You, its light, its joy, its crown, You, its sun which goes not down;
There for ever may we sing Alleluias to our King.
