Hymn No.171

First Line: Songs of thankfulness and praise,

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 Bethle hem:

“You are Christ,” by us confessed —
God in flesh made manifest.

Manifest at Jordan’s stream,
Prophet, Priest, and King supreme;
and at Cana, wedding guest,
in your God head manifest,
you revealed your power divine,
changing water into wine, [Refrain]

Manifest in making whole
weakened body, fainting soul;
manifest in valiant fight,
quelling all the devil’s might;
manifest in gracious will,
ever bringing good from ill: [Refrain]
