313. 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 Godhead 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,
mirrored in your holy word;
may we imitate you now,
and on us your grace endow;
that we like to you may be
at your great epiphany,
and may praise you ever blessed,
God in flesh made manifest.
