PRELUDE & LIGHTING OF CANDLES  

INTROIT              “Isaiah 6:3” Mary Lathbury/Wm. F. Sherwin

OPENING PRAYER                                                       

*HYMN            “As with Gladness Men of Old”              

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.

As with joyful steps they sped to that lowly manger bed,

There to bend on knee before

Him whom heaven and earth adore,

So, may we with willing feet ever seek the mercy seat.

As they offered gifts most rare at that manger rude and bare,

So may we with holy joy, pure and free from sins alloy,

All the costliest treasures bring,

Christ, to Thee, our heavenly King.

Holy Jesus, everyday keep us in the narrow way;

And when earthly things are past,

bring us ransomed souls at last

Where they need no star to guide,

where no clouds Thy glory hide.
