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.

Manifest at Jordan's stream, Prophet, Priest, and King supreme;
And at Cana wedding guest in Thy Godhead manifest;
Manifest in pow'r Divine, changing water into wine;
Anthems be to Thee addressed, God in man made manifest.

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.

Sun and moon shall darkened be, stars shall fall, the heav'ns shall flee;
Christ will then like lightning shine, all will see His glorious sign;
All will then the trumpet hear, all will see the Judge appear;
Thou by all wilt be confessed, God in man made manifest.

Grant us grace to see Thee, Lord, present in Thy holy word -
Grace to imitate Thee now and be pure, as pure art Thou;
That we might become like Thee at Thy great epiphany
And may praise Thee, ever blest, God in man made manifest.

As with the last few hymns, this one is done in a rather straightforward fashion, with a very slight improvised reharmonization and descant on the last verse. it is the last of my Epiphany hymns. Hopefully I will have time between now and Ash Wednesday to do some more recording for Lent. As always, I hope you enjoy.
