"becoming by grace what God is by nature"
-St Athanasius (De Incarnatione, I).
Oh give thanks to the Lord , for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever!
2 Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,
whom he has redeemed from trouble
3 and gathered in from the lands,
from the east and from the west,
from the north and from the south.
