A HYMN FOR TODAY – As With Gladness Men of Old

A HYMN FOR TODAY 

As with gladness men of old 
Did the guiding star behold, 
As with joy they hailed its light, 
Leading onward, beaming bright, 
So, most glorious Lord, may we 
Evermore be led to Thee. 

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. 

In the heavenly country bright 
Need they no created light; 
Thou its light, its joy, its crown, 
Thou its sun which goes not down; 
There forever may we sing 
Alleluias to our King! 

7.7.7.7.7.7 – William C. Dix, 1860
