As With Gladness Men Of Old
(Alleluia To The King)
CCLI Number: 5855410

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 Lord, may we
Evermore be lead to thee

As with joyful steps they sped
Saviour, to thy lowly bed
There to bend the knee before
Thee, whom heaven and earth adore
So may we with willing feet
Ever seek thy mercy seat

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 hides

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

     Alleluia to the King
     Alleluia to the King (repeat)
