AGH 076

Verse 1

Songs of thankfulness and praise
Jesus, Lord, to thee we raise,
Manifested by the star
To the sages from afar;
Branch of royal David's stem
In thy birth at Bethlehem;
Anthems be to thee addressed,
God in Man made manifest.

Verse 2

Manifest at Jordan's stream,
Prophet, Priest, and King supreme;
And at Cana, wedding-guest
In thy Godhead manifest,
Manifest in power divine,
Changing water into wine:
Anthems be to thee addressed,
God in Man made manifest.

Verse 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 thee addressed,
God in Man made manifest.

Verse 4

Sun and moon shall darkened be,
Stars shall fall, the heavens shall flee;
Christ will then like lightning shine,
AII will see his glorious sign;
All will then the trumpet hear;
ALL will see the Judge appear;
Thou by all will be confessed,
God in Man made manifest.
