1.  Son of Man, to Thee I cry;

By the wondrous mystery

Of Thy dwelling here on earth,

By Thy pure and holy birth,

Lord, Thy presence let me see:

Manifest Thyself to me.

2.  Lamb of God, to Thee I cry;

By Thy bitter agony,

By Thy pangs, to us unknown,

By Thy spirit’s parting groan,

Lord, Thy presence let me see:

Manifest Thyself to me.

3.  Prince of Life, to Thee I cry;

By Thy glorious majesty,

By Thy triumph  o’er the grave,

By Thy power to help and save,

Lord, Thy presence let me see:

Manifest Thyself to me.

4.  Lord of Glory, God Most High,

Man exalted to the sky!

With Thy love my bosom fill;

Prompt me to perform Thy will;

Then Thy glory I shall see:

Thou wilt bring me home to Thee.
