Hymn/Song Information

When Christ's appearing was made




When Christís appearing
was made known,
King Herod trembled for his throne;
but he who offers heavenly birth
sought not the kingdoms
of this earth.


The eastern sages saw from far
and followed on his guiding star;
by light their way to Light they trod,
and by their gifts confessed their God.


Within the Jordanís sacred flood
the heavenly Lamb
in meekness stood,
that he, to whom no sin was known,
might cleanse his people
from their own.


Oh, what a miracle divine,
when water reddened into wine!
He spoke the word, and forth it flowed
in streams that nature
níer bestowed.


All glory, Jesus, be to thee
for this thy glad epiphany:
whom with the Father we adore
and Holy Ghost for evermore.


---Alternative verses---


And O what miracle divine,
When water reddened into wine!
He spake the word, and forth it flowed
In streams that nature
neíer bestowed.
