Sing Hymn TLH 127 (V 2-3): As with Gladness Men of Old Hymnary.org link During The Offering
As with joyful steps they sped, Savior, to Thy holy bed,
There to bend the knee before Thee Whom heav’n and earth adore.
So may we with willing feet Ever seek Thy mercy seat.
As they offered gifts most rare At Thy cradle 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!
