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;


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;


Let us praise You, ever blest,
God in man made manifest.
