101. Songs of Thankfulness and Praise

1 Songs of thankfulness and praise,
Jesus Christ, 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 power 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;
with your grace our lives endow,
grace to imitate you now,
that we like to you may be
at your great epiphany;
anthems be to you addressed
God in flesh made manifest.
