You should use some resistors.

The math for calculating what size resistors is pretty easy. Also pages like this,

can do the math for you. If you know how much current you want to flow through the LEDs, then use that number. Otherwise, I suggest 20 milliamperes (20 mA) as a typical, safe but still bright, amount of current for a 5 mm size LED.
