A Carol a Day

By Father Johann Roten, S.M.

December 16: Evermore be led to Thee

As with Gladness Men of Old

William Dix (lyrics)
Conrad Koeher 
1859

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.

The daily crèche and carol is accompanied by some wonderful and moving meditations preparing heart and mind for the gift of Christ's coming.
