Advent Season 2016 - "As With Gladness Men of Old"


In years past we have studied the meaning of different details of Advent:

NATIVITY - The Basics
The Lowly Life of the Shepherd
Wealthy Wise Men Traveling Far
Angels Hovering 'Round
It's Because God Loved Us So Much


This year I decided to feature some of the lesser Christmas hymns - by "lesser" I mean those that I am not familiar with but are listed in my church's old Hymnal.


Today we are featuring: "As With Gladness Men of Old"
(please listen to both YouTube videos below - the first version has a few extra verses)



As With Gladness Men of Old
William C. Dix 1837-1898                     Original chorale by Conrad Kocher 1786-1872
   


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 Lord, may we Evermore be led to Thee.

 


2. As with joyous 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.


3. 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.
