376. 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 addrest,
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 addrest,
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 addrest,
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 blest,
God is flesh made manifest.
