Jesu behold the Wise from far Led to Thy




Jesu ! behold, the Wise from far,
Led to Thy cradle by a star,
Bring gifts to Thee, their God and King !
O guide us by Thy light, that we
The way may find, and still to Thee
Our hearts, our all, for tribute bring !


Jesu ! the pure, the spotless Lamb,
Who to the Temple humbly came,
Duteous, the legal rites to pay !
O make our proud, our stubborn will
All Thy wise, gracious laws fulfil,
Whate'er rebellious nature say !


Jesu ! who on the fatal wood
Pour'dst out Thy life's last drop of blood,
Nailed to the accursed shameful cross !
O may we bless Thy love, and be
Ready, dear Lord, to bear for thee
All shame, all grief, all pain, and loss !


Jesu ! who, by Thine own love slain,
By Thine own Power took'st life again,
And Conqueror from the grave didst rise !
O may Thy death our souls revive,
And ev'n on earth a new life give,
A glorious life, that never dies !


Jesu ! who to Thy heaven again
Return'dst in triumph, there to reign,
Of men and angels sovereign king!
O may our parting souls take flight
Up to that land of joy and light,
And there for ever grateful sing !


All glory to the sacred Three,
One undivided Deity !
All honour, power, and love, and praise !
Still may Thy blessed Name shine bright
In beams of uncreated light,
Crown'd with its own eternal rays !
