Songs of Thankfulness and Praise

Songs of thankfulness and praise Jesus, Lord, to you we raise,
God revealed by guiding star to the sages from afar,
Branch of royal David's stem, in your birth at Bethlehem:
Anthems be to you addressed, God in Christ made manifest.

God revealed at Jordan's stream, God's beloved Son supreme,
And at Cana, wedding guest, in your power manifest,
God revealed in works divine, changing water into wine:
Anthems be to you addressed, God in Christ made manifest.

God revealed in making whole weakened limbs and fainting soul,
God revealed in valiant fight quelling all the devil's might,
God revealed in gracious will, ever bringing good from ill:
Anthems be to you addressed, God in Christ made manifest.

Manifest on mountain height, shining in resplendent light,
Where disciples filled with awe your transfigured glory saw;
From that place you went with them steadfast to Jerusalem;
Cross and Easter day attest, God in Christ made manifest.

Grant us grace to see you, Lord, mirrored in your holy word;
May we imitate you still and obey your perfect will,
That we like to you may be, at your great Epiphany:
May your glory be confessed, God in Christ made manifest.
