Behold, He came, our Savior God!

He came to save His own:

By His own blood and righteousness,

The work was fully done.

Behold, He died, the Substitute!

He bore the wrath of God:

The sword of justice and of wrath

Was drowned in Jesus' blood.


Behold, He rose, He rose for us!

Triumphant o'er the grave:

Freed from our sins, He lives above,

The risen Christ can save.


Behold, He saves! Yes, Jesus saves!

Sinner, there's hope for you:

Come, trust His blood and righteousness,

Believe, and He'll save you.


Behold, He reigns! The God-man reigns!

He reigns as sov'reign Lord:

All creatures soon must bow and say,

That Jesus Christ is Lord!


Behold, He comes again: Rejoice!

Let ransomed sinners sing:

We'll see that One who died for us

We soon shall see our King!
