Songs of thankfulness and praise

Songs of thankfulness and praise
Jesus, Lord, to you we raise,
once revealed, when heaven’s star
brought the wise men from afar;
branch of royal David’s stem
in your birth at Bethlehem:
Word before the world began,
God revealed to us in man.

2. God revealed at Jordan’s stream,
Prophet, Priest and King supreme;
once revealed in power divine
changing water into wine;
Cana’s holy wedding-guest
keeping to the last the best:
Word before the world began,
God revealed to us in man.

3. God revealed in valiant fight
conquering the devil’s might;
sins forgiven, sickness healed,
life restored and love revealed:
once revealed in gracious will
ever bringing good from ill:
Word before the world began,
God revealed to us in man.

4. Sun and moon shall darkened be,
stars shall fall, the heavens flee;
Christ will then like lightning shine,
all will see the glorious sign;
all will then the trumpet hear,
all will see the Judge appear:
Word before the world began,
God revealed to us in man.

5. Grant us grace to see you, Lord,
mirrored in your holy word;
may we follow and endure;
make us pure, as you are pure;
then, transformed, your glory see
when you come in majesty:
Word before the world began,
God revealed to us in man.
