278. Songs of Thankfulness and Praise

1 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 flesh made manifest.

2 Manifest at Jordan's stream,
Prophet, Priest, and King supreme;
And at Cana, wedding guest,
In your God-head manifest;
Manifest in pow'r divine,
Changing water into wine;
Anthems be to you addressed,
God in flesh made manifest.

3 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;
Anthems be to you addressed,
God in flesh made manifest.

4 Grant us grace to see you, Lord,
Present in your holy word.
By that grace which you endow,
Help us imitate you now,
That we, pure like you, may be
At your great epiphany;
And may praise you, ever blest,
God in flesh made manifest.
