Lyrics
AS WITH GLADNESS MEN OF OLD
Words by William Chatterton Dix (1837-1898)
Music by Conrad Kocher (1786-1872)

(G)As with (D)glad(G)ness, (C/E)men (D7)of (G)old
(C)Did the (G/B)guid(C)ing (G/D)star (D)be(G)hold
As with (D)joy (G)they (C)hailed (D7)its (G)light
(C)Leading (G/B)on(C)ward, (G/D)beam(D)ing (G)bright
So, (D7)most (G)gracious (D)Lord, may (G)we
(C)Ev(D)er(G)more (C/E)be (G/D)led (D7)to (G)Thee.

As with joyful steps they sped
To that lowly manger bed
There to bend the knee before
Him Whom heaven 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 heavenly King.
Holy Jesus, every 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.
