O God, who by the leading of a star
Didst manifest thy only-begotten Son to the Gentiles:
Mercifully grant, that we, which know thee now by faith,
May after this life have the fruition of thy glorious Godhead;
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

-- Collect for the Feast of the Epiphany, Book of Common Prayer (1549)
