145 ~ Songs of Thankfulness and Praise
Songs of thankfulness and praise, Jesus, Lord, to You we raise, Manifested by the star To the sages from afar; Branch of royal David's stem In Your birth at Bethlehem;
Anthems be to You addressed, God in man made manifest.
Manifest at Jordan's stream, Prophet, Priest, and King supreme; And at Cana, wedding guest, In Your Godhead manifest; Manifest in power divine, Changing water into wine;
Manifest in making whole Palsied limbs and fainting soul; Manifest in valiant fight, Quelling all the devil's might; Manifest in gracious will, Ever bringing good from ill;
Let us praise You, ever blest, God in man made manifest.
Grant us grace to see You, Lord, Mirrored in Your holy Word; May we imitate Your way, And be pure, as pure we may, That we like to You may be At Your great epiphany;
