Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

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 joyful steps they sped 
	To that lowly manger bed, 
	There to bend the knee before 
	Him whom heav'n and earth adore, 
	So, may we with willing feet, 
	Ever seek the mercy seat. 

3.	As they offered gifts most rare 
	At the 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 heav'nly King. 

4.	Holy Jesus, ev'ry 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.
